Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning actress Kyra Sedgwick will star in the premiere of Academy Award winner John Patrick Shanley's The Danish Widow, which will run in July as part of the Powerhouse Theater season at Vassar College.
According to the Powerhouse, "In The Danish Widow, a mystery unfolds against an international backdrop as a female insurance investigator finds herself battling wits with the formidable title character."
Shanley describes the play as "disturbing, funny, deadly serious, sexy - like a Hitchcock film with a modernist edge."
Shanley will direct the July 16-27 run that will star Sedgwick ("The Closer," Twelfth Night), as well as Tony nominee Craig Bierko (The Music Man), Emmy nominee Matt McGrath (Cabaret, "Frasier") and stage and screen actress Annika Boras ("The Following," Chair).
Shanley received the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize in Drama for Doubt, which he adapted and directed for the screen. The film adaptation of Doubt received an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay. Shanley's works also include the plays Outside Mullingar, Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, Defiance, The Dreamer Examines His Pillow, the musical Romantic Poetry and the Oscar-winning screenplay for "Moonstruck."
