According to The Associated Press,, three-time Tony Award winner Glenn Close is planning to return to the stage following a 15-year absence.

She has appeared on the big screen in Albert Nobbs, Heights, Nine Lives, The Stepford Wives, the TV movie version of South Pacific, 101 and 102 Dalmatians, Tarzan, In & Out, Air Force One and many more films.
