Kathy Bates to Show 'Devotion' in New McNally Play
Variety reports that Oscar-winner Kathy Bates will return to the stage in Tony Award-winner Terrence McNally's (Deuce, Some Men) new show, Unusual Acts of Devotion. The show is scheduled to premiere at the Philadelphia Theater Company this fall.
Bates, who won an Oscar for her villainous role in 1990's Misery, has also received nominations for her roles in 1998's Primary Colors and 2002's About Schmidt. She has also appeared in films Dick Tracy, Fried Green Tomatoes, A Civil Action, and Love Liza, and her stage credits also include night, Mother on Broadway and Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune Off-Broadway.
PTC's upcoming season includes The Happiness Lecture, a new work from Bill Irwin (Fool Moon, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), which will enjoy a springtime run after Wendy Wasserstein's Third. The new season will also feature one more show yet to be announced.
