Playing the role of a woman whose unexpected relationship with a considerably older man (she is 33 to his 75) leads to an uncertain future, Mary-Louise Parker–joined by Denis Arndt–is reprising her role she first played in the play’s world premiere last year.
Parker isn’t new to Broadway. She won a Tony Award in 2001 for her role in Proof. She also appeared on Broadway in Hedda Gabler, The Snow Geese, and Reckless.
Mary-Louise Parker–at 51–has run the gamut of captivating roles in film, on TV, and on the stage. She most recently played the role of Raymond “Red” Reddington’s (played by James Spader) ex-wife Naomi Hyland on the hit NBC show The Blacklist for four episodes.
If you’re a Mary-Louise Parker fan, you’re likely not surprised she’s headed back to Broadway. Her diverse talent traverses many realms in the acting world–each of which she has perfected.
