Lynn Redgrave's Nightingale to Bow at Hartford Stage in May
Nightingale, which is loosely based on the life of Redgrave's maternal grandmother, Beatrice Kempson, had its American premiere last year at Los Angeles' Mark Taper Forum, where it earned excellent reviews.
Redgrave earned Tony Award nominations for Shakespeare For My Father (which she also wrote), Mrs. Warren's Profession, and The Constant Wife. She received both Drama Desk and Obie awards for her work in the Off-Broadway show Talking Heads. Her films include Georgy Girl (for which she received an Academy Award nomination), Gods and Monsters, and Kinsey.
