Deuce Stars Lansbury and Seldes Featured on 'On Stage'

Deuce stars Angela Lansbury and Marian Seldes will be featured in a two-part interview on New York 1's "On Stage".  The first part will run this weekend (July 14-16), with the second part airing next weekend (July 21-23).  "On-Stage" airs on New York 1 on Saturday and Sunday at 9:30 AM and 7:30 PM, Monday at 9:30 PM and early Tuesday at 12:30 AM. 

Four time Tony Award-winner Angela Lansbury stars with Tony Award-winner Marian Seldes in Deuce, the world premiere of a new play by four-time Tony Award-winner Terrence McNally, and directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Michael Blakemore

Lansbury and Seldes star in Deuce as two former doubles tennis legends, reunited at a championship tournament.  "As they watch a singles match grow increasingly heated, the two women reminisce on the sidelines, remembering past triumphs and unearthing forgotten truths, in Mr. McNally's tender and unexpectedly moving new play," state press notes.

In her 60-plus year career on stage, film and television, Lansbury received four Tony Awards® for her starring roles in Mame, Dear World, Gypsy and Sweeney Todd, three Academy Award-nominations for Gaslight (her screen debut), The Picture of Dorian Gray and The Manchurian Candidate, and 18 Emmy Award-nominations, including 12 for her long-running television series, "Murder, She Wrote." 

Seldes won a Tony for A Delicate Balance, and has been nominated for her performances in Father's Day, Deathtrap, Ring Round the Moon, and Dinner at Eight.   Last season, she earned rave reviews for her performance in Mr. McNally's Dedication, or the Stuff of Dreams.

Deuce is playing at the Music Box Theatre (239 West 45th Street).  The production will play a strictly limited engagement through August 19.  Tickets are on sale at TeleCharge at 212: 239-6200, online at www.Telecharge.com, or in person at the Music Box Theatre box office.
