Heche, known for her film roles in "Six Days Seven Nights," "Wag the Dog" and "Donnie Brasco," joined the Broadway company of Proof July 2, 2002. Joining her in Los Angeles will be Robert Foxworth as Catherine's complicated math-genius father, Kaitlin Hopkins (Bat Boy) as her manipulative sister and Jeremy Sisto ("Clueless," "The 60's") as the math student who comes to court her.
Proof playwright David Auburn won the 2001 Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize for the play, which will have run a solid 918 performances at the Walter Kerr Theatre before it closes. That puts the play's record run between that of the original production of The Elephant Man and The Moon Is Blue.
