Broadway star Donna Murphy has joined the sixth and final season of Starz’s Power in a recurring role.

Deadline reports the two-time Tony winner will play Lorette Walsh, a Democrat running for governor, going head-to-head against Rashad Tate, portrayed by Larenz Tate (Crash).

Murphy (Passion, The King and I) is no stranger to TV, with roles on shows including The Good Wife, The Blacklist, and Quantico. The recent Hello, Dolly! star won a Daytime Emmy for HBO’s Lifestories: Families in Crisis.

Power was created by Courtney A. Kemp and follows the Manhattan elite and its underbelly counterpart—the international drug trade. During a Television Critics Association panel last month, Kemp said the season finale “is probably the biggest swing of my writing life.” The final season will air in two parts, with 10 episodes starting August 25 and the final five episodes airing in early 2020.
