Directed by B.J. Jones, the production of David Rambo's play will run through Nov. 29. In The Lady with All the Answers, press notes state, "Landers finds herself writing a column about a new kind of heartbreak — her own. Drawn from Landers' life and letters, The Lady with All the Answers is a touching and comic portrait of a wise, funny, no-nonsense woman who was, in fact, one of the most influential figures in America by virtue of the millions of readers who wrote to her seeking her indispensable advice and sometimes controversial opinions on matters ranging from marriage, divorce, life, death and sexuality, to the proper way to hang a roll of toilet paper in the bathroom."

Judith Ivey is a two-time Tony Award winner for her roles in Steaming and Hurlyburly. She also received a nomination for her performance in Park Your Car in Harvard Yard, and her other Broadway credits include the revival of Follies as well as Voices in the Dark, Blithe Spirit, Precious Sons, Piaf and Bedroom Farce.
