NEW YORK, May 15 (UPI) --
Three-time, Tony Award-winning actress Glenn Close
is to star in a Broadway revival of Edward Albee's drama, A Delicate Balance
, this fall, producers announced.
Co-starring John Lithgow, Lindsay Duncan, Bob Balaban, Clare Higgins and Martha Plimpton, the show is scheduled to begin previews Oct. 20, will open Nov. 20 and will wrap Feb. 22.
"Agnes and Tobias, a long-married couple, must maintain their equilibrium as, over the course of a weekend, they welcome home their 36-year-old daughter after the collapse of her fourth marriage, and give shelter to their best friends, all the while tolerating Agnes' alcoholic sister, Claire," a synopsis said.
Close earned her third Tony Award in 1995 for her performance in Sunset Boulevard, her last appearance on Broadway. She also won Tonys for Death and the Maiden and The Real Thing.
