Former "Dallas" star Linda Gray will step in for Kathleen Turner during Turner's vacation from Broadway's The Graduate.

Gray, who will be making her Broadway debut, will portray the infamous Mrs. Robinson from Sept. 17 to Sept. 22. Gray performed the role in the show's London engagement — her West End debut — from Oct. 1, 2001 to Jan. 19, 2002.

Best known as J.R. Ewing's long-suffering wife Sue Ellen in the Emmy-winning TV hit "Dallas," Linda Gray made her stage debut at L.A.'s Canon Theatre in Love Letters. She also appeared in The Vagina Monologues in both L.A. and Atlanta. Her many screen credits include "All That Glitters," "Models, Inc.," "Melrose Place," "Lovejoy," "Haywire," "The Two Worlds of Jennie Logan," "Why My Daughter" and "The Gayle Moffit Story." Gray recently completed the independent film "The Star of Jaipur," which is scheduled for a release this year. The actress is an Ambassador of Goodwill to the United Nations.

Set in California in the 1960's, The Graduate — based on the classic film of the same name — plays The Plymouth Theatre (236 W. 45th Street). Tickets — ranging from $21.25 to $81.25 — are available through Telecharge by calling (212) 239-6200.
