Clarice Taylor, best-known for playing Grandma Huxtable on TV's "Cosby Show," concludes the run of her solo play, Spermegga, at NYC's Hudson Guild Theatre, Feb. 20. The show began previews Jan. 12 and officially opened 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.
