Tony Award-Winner Phylicia Rashad Joins 'OSAGE' 5/26


August: Osage County, which, on Friday, May 22nd, surpassed The Heidi Chronicles in the list of Broadway's longest running plays, welcomes Tony Award-winner Phylicia Rashad to The Cast tonight, Tuesday, May 26th. Ms. Rashad will star as Violet Weston.
