Frances Sternhagen to Star in Vita & Virginia on March 17 and 31
The play, adapted by Eileen Atkins from the correspondence between writers Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West, takes place in the 1920s and 1930s and through the first years of WWII. It deals, in a very timely way, with women seeking their place in the world as they face personal and professional conflicts as well as the looming world war. The show also stars Patricia Elliott as Sackville-West and is directed by Pamela Berlin.
Sternhagen is a two-time Tony Award winner for The Good Doctor and The Heiress. Her many other Broadway credits include Edward Albee's Seascape, Steel Magnolias, Morning's at Seven, and On Golden Pond.
