The vehicle was not named, but Variety mentioned Marsha Norman's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, 'night, Mother, as a possibility. Earlier Variety reports had a production of that drama coming to Broadway with Michael Mayer directing and Camryn Manheim and Brenda Blethyn as daughter and mom.

Mayer told Variety a Broadway revival is being discussed for 2004, with Fox Theatricals (one of the partners on Mayer's Thoroughly Modern Millie) producing.

The bleak and humane play concerns a mother and her grown and ill daughter's wish to die.

The last time Falco came the Broadway, in Terrence McNally's Frankie and Johnny, the result was a box office success.

Anne Pitoniak and Kathy Bates played mother and daughter in the original Broadway run of the play, which played the Golden Theatre March 1983-February 1984. Both actresses were Tony-nommed, as was the play and the director, Tom Moore. The production originated at American Repertory Theatre. The 1986 film starred Anne Bancroft and Sissy Spacek.
