Kate Burton isn't the only star in Hedda Gabler — the Broadway revival also features Michael Emerson (Gross Indecencies), Jennifer Van Dyck (Dancing at Lughnasa) and Harris Yulin (The Price, The Diary of Anne Frank).
Kate Burton stars as Henrik Ibsen's Hedda Gabler, a Norse gal with a gripe and a gun. Under Nicholas Martin's direction, she is trapped and frustrated by the bourgeois world into which she finds herself married. Populating that world are the likes of her ineffectual, academic husband Tesman (Emerson) and the devilish Judge Brack (Yulin). Rounding out the cast are David Lansbury, Maria Cellario, Van Dyck and Angela Thornton. Hedda has been adapted by Jon Robin Baitz.
