Glenn Close, John Lithgow heading to Broadway for 'A Delicate Balance'

By Kyle Johnson,

It has nearly been 20 years since Glenn Close was last on Broadway, but she's about to remedy that by starring in A Delicate Balance alongside John Lithgow, who also has another play lined up for the summer.

Close's return will see the revival of the 1966 drama from Edward Albee, with Tony winner Pam MacKinnon on board to direct, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Others set to appear include Martha Plimpton, Clare Higgins, Bob Balaban and Lindsay Duncan.

The drama, which originally won Albee a Pulitzer Prize, will only get a limited 18-week engagement beginning on Nov. 20 after a month of previews.

A Delicate Balance will be Lithgow's second play of the year as he's also set to star in King Lear set in Central Park, reports The Associated Press. Lithgow, who has won two Tony Awards, spoke of his upcoming appointments, saying, "They're two roles that I never intended to play in such proximity, but you can't turn them down."

The 3rd Rock from the Sun alum added, "It's a great pairing of roles. They really couldn't be more different."
