Hartford Stages' "Summer Stage" series, an initiative by new artistic director Michael Wilson, will continue on Aug. 13 with Rhoda Lerman's Eleanor -- Her Secret Journey, a portrait of former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt starring Jean Stapleton and directed by John Tillinger. The show runs until Aug. 22. Stapleton recently appeared on the Hartford stage playing a part in Horton Foote's The Death of Papa. Her other theatre credits include Moliere's The Learned Ladies and Pinter's Mountain Language, both at New York's CSC Rep, a frequent haunt of Stapleton's. On television, Stapleton is well remembered for her long run as Edith Bunker on "All in the Family."

"Summer Stage" began earlier this summer with a return engagement of Hartford Stage's 1998 production of A Streetcar Named Desire. For information, call Hartford Stage, (860) 527-5151.
