Theater: Sally Field Coming to Broadway Next Winter, As Scooped Here in February


Sally Field is coming to Broadway next winter. Surprise!

I told you back on February 23rd that two time Oscar winner Sally would star in Tennessee Williams’ “The Glass Menagerie,” with Sam Gold directing. Sally last appeared in the play 12 years ago in a Kennedy Center production directed by Greg Mosher.

The new production will co-star Finn Wittrock, hot as a pistol after his tours of duty in “American Horror Story.” Finn co-starred with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Andrew Garfield in Mike Nichols’ “Death of a Salesman.”

This production will also bring back to the stage Joe Mantello, who’s been busy directing “The Humans” and “The Last Ship” among other Broadway shows.

Broadway next winter is shaping up– Cate Blanchett will be there at the same time.
