NEW YORK (AP) — Two-time Tony Award winner Judith Ivey is returning to two familiar places — she's back on Broadway and revisiting an old work.
Producers said Monday that Ivey will join the cast of "The Heiress," a play based on the Henry James novel "Washington Square," which was made into a 1997 movie co-starring Ivey.
The play also stars Jessica Chastain, David Strathairn and "Downton Abbey" star Dane Stevens. It will be directed by playwright and director Moises Kaufman.
Preview performances begin Oct. 7 at the Walter Kerr Theatre on 48th Street. Opening night is set for Nov. 1 with a closing date of Feb. 10.
The play is about a young woman who must choose between her heart or her inheritance when a suitor that her father distrusts enters her life.
