Clarice Taylor, best-known for playing Grandma Huxtable on TV's "Cosby Show," brings her solo play, Spermegga, to NYC's Hudson Guild Theatre, Jan. 12-Feb. 20, officially opening Jan. 16.
The piece, which looks at a young woman journeying into womanhood, premiered at Philadelphia's Freedom Theatre in June, with numerous regional dates following.
Freedom artistic director Walter Dallas directs the comedy/drama, which allows Taylor to play women -- and men -- of varying ages. Taylor scored a regional hit with another solo, that one about trailblazing comedienne Moms Mabley.
A founding member of the Negro Ensemble Company, Taylor appeared on Broadway in The Wiz and in 1955's Obie-winning Trouble in Mind.
