RIALTO CHATTER: Chloe Sevigny to Join Katie Holmes in EXTREMITIES on Broadway?


EW.com is reporting that Big Love's Chloe Sevigny is in talks to join Katie Holmes on Broadway in the near future with William Mastrosimone's Extremities. As BroadwayWorld previously reported, Holmes has reportedly been tapped to play the role of a woman who "turns the tables" on her attempted rapist and must decide how to handle the situation. Sevigny would play her opposite.

Says Sevigny of the possibility: "I was reading it and I'm kind of seeing how the cast is gonna pan out," she says. "I know the director is great but I feel like the cast has gotta be real strong. And it's such a commitment."

The production could arrive on Broadway as early as next season, with Kenny Leon likely to direct. Debbie Bisno and Ray Gaspard will executive produce. 

Extremities was first performed off Broadway in 1982. It opened at The Westside Theatre in New York on December 22, 1982 and ran for 325 performances. Susan Sarandon originated the lead role of Marjorie in the 1982 off-Broadway production. Farrah Fawcett later took over the role to great critical acclaim. Katie Holmes made her Broadway debut in the recent revival of All My Sons.
