Murphy will play Judge Alice Adelson in the episode entitled "A Material World," which will air April 13 at 9 PM ET.
Here's how the episode is described: "Alicia and Diane consider merging their firms in the wake of Will’s death, even as they find themselves on opposite sides of a contentious divorce suit. Meanwhile, Alicia offers assistance to Finn when it becomes clear that the State's Attorney is looking for a scapegoat in the Jeffrey Grant case, on 'The Good Wife.'"
Murphy won Tony Awards for her performances in Passion and The King and I and was Tony-nominated for Wonderful Town, Lovemusik and The People in the Picture. She will soon be seen in the new television series "Hindsight."
