Jessica Lange Is Headed Back To Broadway In A Familiar Role.

Two of B.B. NEW YORK (AP) — Jessica Lange will return to Broadway next spring in a production of “Long Day’s Journey Into Night,” playing the same role she did 15 years ago in London.Avid fans of American Horror Story and Jessica Lange were disappointed to find out that her four-season tenure on the FX anthology series had officially come to an end last year.Jessica Lange and Gabriel Byrne will star in “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” by Eugene O’Neill next spring, the Roundabout Theatre Company announced today.

King’s daughters are alleging that the blues legend was poisoned to death by his closest associates, but the coroner says preliminary autopsy results don’t support that contention. Directed by Jonathan Kent, the production will begin previews on March 31, 2016, before its official April 19 opening at the American Airlines Theatre. CNN says that Patty King and Karen Williams made the accusations in separate but identically worded affidavits filed over the weekend. “I believe my father was poisoned and that he was administered foreign substances to induce his premature death,” their affidavits said. “I believe my father was murdered.” King died May 14 in home hospice care in Las Vegas at age 89, prompting his daughters to accuse LaVerne Toney, King’s business manager, and Myron Johnson, his personal assistant, of neglect.

The last Broadway revival of O’Neill’s 1956 play — the story of the Tyrone family and their battle to unearth and conceal a lifetime of secrets, and drawing heavily on the playwright’s personal history — was a starry production in 2003, starring Brian Dennehy, Vanessa Redgrave, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Robert Sean Leonard and directed by Robert Falls. Lange previously played the role of Mary Tyrone in a 2000 production of O’Neill’s familial drama in London, receiving an Olivier Award nomination for her performance as the morphine-addicted mother.

Her co-stars in this new Roundabout Theater Company production include Gabriel Byrne, as her husband and Tyrone patriarch, and John Gallagher Jr. as their son Edmund. The “American Horror Story” star made her Broadway debut in a 1992 production of “A Streetcar Named Desire” and returned to the stage in the 2005 revival of “The Glass Menagerie. The production is part of Roundabout’s 50th Anniversary Season and will be presented along with Harold Pinter’s “Old Times,” starring Clive Owen, “Thérèse Raquin,” starring Keira Knightley, and “Noises Off” by Michael Frayn, over the 2015-2016 season.
