Oscar nominee Melanie Griffith will star in Laguna Playhouse’s upcoming production of The Graduate. The show will officially open October 4 and is set to run through October 22 as a part of the 2017–2018 season.
The Graduate is adapted by Terry Johnson, based on the novel by Charles Webb and the screenplay by Buck Henry and Calder Willingham. Ovation Award-winner Michael Matthews directs.
Griffith made her Broadway debut as Roxie Hart in Chicago. She will play the iconic role of Mrs. Robinson, a lonely housewife who seduces her friend’s son, Benjamin Braddock, who is just out of college and living at home. The tables turn when he starts falling for the one person she specifically told him not to: her daughter.
Complete casting will be announced at a later date.
