NEW YORK, Oct. 20 (UPI) -- Tennessee Williams' "Suddenly Last Summer" is being revived off-Broadway at New York's Roundabout Theatre Company.

Emmy and Tony Award-winner Blythe Danner stars as "the formidable Mrs. Venable, an aging widow distraught over the mysterious death of her son," Playbill.com reported. Carla Gugino ("Sin City," "Spy Kids") plays the cousin who travels with Mrs. Venable.

When the cousin begins to make scandalous accusations, Mrs. Venable becomes determined to save her son's reputation.

Also appearing in the production -- which opened Friday night -- are Becky Ann Baker, Gale Harold and Wayne Wilcox. Mark Brokaw directed the production.

"Suddenly Last Summer" premiered in New York in January 1958, Playbill reported.
