His and Hers Newsflash- Star-Studded Season at Mark Taper Forum and D’Amboise in “Chicago”

HIS FIND: John Lithgow, Jane Fonda and Olympia Dukakis to Appear in 2011 Season at the Mark Taper Forum

The Mark Taper Forum’s 2011 season will feature five productions, punctuated with starring appearances by John Lithgow, Jane Fonda, and Olympia Dukakis and featuring playwright Theresa Rebeck. Lithgow’s Stories By Heart will open the season, then Fonda will reprise her role in 33 Variations, followed by Lanford Wilson’s Burn This (cast still TBA), leading to Rebeck’s The Novelist, and finally Dukakis in Vigil by Morris Panych.

HER FIND: Charlotte D’Amboise returns to Broadway as Roxie Hart in “Chicago”

I saw Charlotte D’Amboise tour as Roxie Hart in the late ’90s, and she has since then impressed me as Cassie in the pre-Broadway tryout of the revival of A Chorus Line and as Mrs. Phagan the production of Parade at the Mark Taper Forum last fall. Roxie is one of those characters that can be played with different levels of innocence, experience and maturity, so I’m very curious how Miss Amboise’s take on the role will change after nearly a decade!
