Actress Marian Seldes is well known for her portrayal's of playwright Edward Albee's women. Now, it seems as though the theatre legend has taken to the late playwright Harry Kondoleon as she performs the scribe's A Room of One's Own, Aug. 19. The one-time staging is part of The Culture Project's Women Center Stage festival at the downtown Manhattan venue.
Seldes, who was last seen in Kondoleon's Play Yourself Off-Broadway, will play the role of author Virginia Woolf in the direct-address monologue piece. The novelist speaks out about issues involving women artists.
Other credits of Seldes include 45 Seconds From Broadway, Albee's The Play About the Baby and A Delicate Balance as well as Helen at the Public Theatre and The Butterfly Collection at Playwrights Horizons. Film work includes "Hollywood Ending," "Town & Country" and "Duets."
