Estelle Parsons is replacing Anna Massey in the forthcoming London production of DEATHTRAP with Simon Russell Beale and Jonathan Groff.

With two American names now in the cast, surely this is Broadway bound.

I know the name but can't think of what she's done.

(which kind of confirms your point - this isn't being aimed primarily at the local audience)

Rosanne's hilarious mother in the American TV show and she was in the movie 'Bonnie & Clyde'.
She must be quiet old now?

She's 82 and still going strong - went up and down all those stairs in August: Osage County for a year on Broadway and then on tour as well.

I will love her forever for doing 'August' -one of my Broadway highlights last year. Amazing and she is perfect for the part in 'Deathtrap'-
I'm not keen on the art work tho!

It's a David Pugh production - of course they've got their eyes on Broadway.

I can't get the show's website to work, anyone else having problems with it? The artwork (on the Delfont Mackintosh website) looks like it'll be good on the marquee and bus ads but crap for posters.
