Mozart in the Jungle's Hannah Dunne to Make New York Debut Opposite Molly Ringwald
Hannah Dunne (Mozart in the Jungle) has been announced to join the cast of Terms of Endearment, playing the role of Emma opposite the previously announced Molly Ringwald. Dan Gordon's U.S. premiere stage adaptation of Terms of Endearment will play from October 29 to December 11 at 59E59 Theaters. Michael Parva is set to direct.
Based on the book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Larry McMurtry and the Oscar-winning screenplay by James L. Brooks, Gordon's play traces the relationship between a highly opinionated mother and her feisty daughter as they seek to find humor and courage in the face of life's challenges.
In addition to starring in the Golden Globe Award-winning Amazon series Mozart in the Jungle, Dunne guest starred with Steve Buschemi in Louis CK’s Horace and Pete and has guested on his FX series Louis. Film credits include Noah Baumbach’s Francis Ha. She will be making her New York stage debut in Terms of Endearment.
Ringwald has previously appeared on the New York stage in the Broadway productions of Cabaret and Enchanted April as well as off-Broadway in Tick, Tick…Boom!, the Pulitzer Prize-winning How I Learned to Drive, and more. Her numerous films include the iconic movies Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and Pretty in Pink.
