Adrienne Barbeau Stars in The Property Known as Garland, Spring '06

Adrienne Barbeau will take on the role of Judy Garland in The Property Known as Garland, Billy Van Zandt's play about the legendary singer/actress.  The show will be presented from March 13th through June 4th, 2006 at The Actor's Playhouse (100 Seventh Avenue South); opening night is set for March 23rd.

Directed by Glenn Casale, the show is "a fictional account of Judy backstage at her final concert appearance at Falkoner Center in Copenhagen in 1969."  The show will also feature Kerby Joe Grubb.

"The last time I was on stage in New York was in 1972, downtown at the Eden Theatre in Grease. Off-Broadway gave me my big break, so I'm excited to be returning, especially with such an incredible project. Billy has written such a great script, I couldn't stay away," stated Barbeau, who is married to Van Zandt..

Barbeau, while best-known to TV audiences for her work on "Maude," is a stage veteran who originated the role of Betty Rizzo in Grease; she received a Tony Award nomination and a Theatre World Award for her work in the show.  The actress, who also appeared in the original Broadway production of Fiddler on the Roof, has been seen on screen and on TV in "Carnivale," Ghost Rock, No Place Like Home, Swamp Thing, Escape from New York, The Cannonball Run, The Fog and others.

Charlie Smith (sets), Cynthia Nordstrom (costumes) and Richard Winkler (lighting) will comprise the design team of The Property Known as Garland.
