Liv Ullmann to Direct Own Translation of A DOLL'S HOUSE on Broadway?


Near the end of an interview on the Leonard Lopate Show about filmmaker Dheeraj Alkolkar's upcoming project "Liv and Ingmar", Liv Ullmann reveals that she will soon be directing A Doll's House on Broadway from her own translation.

"That will encompass everything I care about—Ibsen, Nora, everything she stood for—I will translate it myself," she says. "And I know everything that I knew, and everything I am, and also what I learned from Ingmar [Bergman] will be part of that."

She has received two Oscar nominations, two BAFTA Film Award nominations, and was nominated five times for a Best Actress Golden Globe, winning once for The Emigrants. Ullmann is well known for her collaboration with Swedish film director Ingmar Bergman. She appeared in his films Persona, The Passion of Anna, Cries and Whispers, Autumn Sonata and many more. Ullmann's first film as a director was Sofie in 1992. Her other film directing credits include Faithless. Onstage, she directed Cate Blanchett in the Sydney Theatre Company production of A Streetcar Named Desire in 2009, which went on to the Kennedy Center and BAM in New York City.
