Demi Moore, Glenn Close Daughters Joining Off Broadway Hit


What year is it? 2011? I remember when Glenn Close‘s daughter Annie was a baby. Now she’s following in her mom’s hallowed footsteps and joining the cast of Nora Ephron’s “Love, Loss, and What I Wore”– a hit off Broadway show that just keeps going, Producer Daryl Roth has been very smart about this show, rotating in and out name actresses from eclectic backgrounds–she’s had the great soap actress Kim Zimmer in there recently. And this is no rumor, just Rumer: When Annie Starke (that’s Glenn’s kid) comes in, she’ll be joined by another famous child, Rumer Willis, daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis. Rumer is a nice kid who’s gotten a bad tabloid rap hanging out in LA. Maybe she’ll get serious once she’s in New York. Also in that cast which starts March 23rd, is Anne Meara, now known as Ben Stiller’s mom. Donna McKechnie, the Tony Award winning star of “A Chorus Line,” rounds out that group. More names to come…
