Deadline.com reports that six-time Oscar nominee and three-time Tony winner Glenn Close will play Anna Anderson, the woman who claimed to be the Grand Russian Duchess Anastasia, in the film "Duchess."
The film, which is based on true events, covers the last days of Anna and her American husband Jack Manahan, who kidnapped Anna after the courts forcibly placed her in a retirement home. The two evaded authorities throughout rural Virginia.
"Duchess" marks a reunion with Close and "The Chumscrubber" director Arie Posin and producers Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn, who teamed with Close for "Albert Nobbs." The film was written by Posin and Nicholas Kazan.
Close, an Emmy, Golden Globe and Tony Award winner and six-time Academy Award acting nominee, has performed onstage in Sunset Boulevard and The Real Thing. Some of her film credits include "Fatal Attraction" and "Dangerous Liaisons," and her TV credits include "Damages" and "The Shield."
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
