The "Wag the Dog" and "John Q" star will follow up her portrayal of a drug-addicted mother of four in the Lifetime Original Movie "Gracie's Choice" with a performance in Roundabout Theatre Company's new Broadway production of the comedy "Twentieth Century."
In the play, the 34-year-old actress will portray a chorus girl transformed into a leading lady by an egomaniacal Broadway director (Alec Baldwin.)
Hailed in 2002 for her performance in Broadway's "Proof," Heche has kept a relatively low profile since her very public breakup with girlfriend Ellen DeGeneres and subsequent breakdown in 2000.
Married with a two-year-old son, Heche also has several feature films in the works.
