Amber Tamblyn will make her debut on Broadway next year in Beth Henley’s comedy The Miss Firecracker Contest next spring. Tamblyn has already starred in House, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and Joan of Arcadia.
Tamblyn’s role in the Broadway show was announced on Tuesday by the show’s producers, reports The New York Times. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants actress will be joined by director Judith Ivey, a Tony Award-winning actress who will make her directing debut.
Ivey is currently appearing in the Broadway revival of The Heiress. Amber Tamblyn will make her Broadway debut as the star in the comedy, Carnelle Scott, a lonely woman in Mississippi who hopes that winning in the patriotic pageant will turn her life around.
The character was also a very important role in Holly Hunter’s early Broadway career, who played Carnelle Scott in the original Off Broadway production of the comedy.
Hunter played the role in 1984, then again when it was made into a film in 1989, where she starred alongside Mary Steenburgen and Time Robbins, according to The Denver Post.
Tamblyn’s Broadway debut will be the first time Beth Henley has graced the stage since 1982′s production of The Wake of Jamey Foster, which also starred Hunter. She also had another Broadway outing, Crimes of the Heart, which won the Pulitzer Prize for drama.
The actors gracing the stage during Amber Tamblyn’s Broadway debut have not yet been announced. The dates for the comedy, as well as the venue, will be announced soon.
