For three weeks in November 1996, Bonnie Franklin, star of the sitcom "One Day at a Time," joined the Off-Broadway cast of Grace & Glorie, a comedy/drama by Tom Ziegler. Now the actress will get to do three more weeks of the show, when G&G gets a prodution at the Helen Hayes Performing Arts Center in Nyack, NY, Mar. 13-29.

Franklin co-stars as Gloria (nicknamed "Glorie") opposite the Grace of Pat Carroll -- a 43-year veteran of the stage. Carroll's Broadway debut, in 1955's Catch A Star, netted her a Tony nomination, and since then she's played more than 200 roles, including the long-running solo, Gertrude Stein.

Besides co-starring the original production of Applause (for which she received a Tony nomination and Outer Critics Circle Award), Franklin's stage credits include Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, Dames at Sea, and Your Own Thing Off-Broadway.

Grace & Glorie, directed in Nyack by Alan Fox, tells of a high powered New York career woman (Franklin), who takes on the task of "saving" an elderly woman from predatory land developers and bankers.
