Academy Award-winning legend Faye Dunaway will begin her journey with the play Tea at Five this summer at Boston's Huntington Theatre. The pre-Broadway engagement will take place June 21-July 7, with a New York run expected to follow thereafter.

Playwright Matthew Lombardo has crafted a new version of his acclaimed play for this production, which will be directed by Tony Award nominee John Tillinger. Dunaway will play Oscar-winning legend Katharine Hepburn. Additional information about the show is still to be announced.

Dunaway is known for films including Bonnie and Clyde and Chinatown, both of which earned her Oscar nominations, and the 1976 satire Network (a stage adaptation of which is currently on Broadway starring Bryan Cranston) for which she won an Academy Award for Best Actress. She last appeared on Broadway in 1982 in The Curse of an Aching Heart. Dunaway's other Broadway credits include A Man for All Seasons and After the Fall.
