Amber Tamblyn To Make Her Broadway Debut in ‘The Miss Firecracker Contest’ Revival

Amber Tamblyn will make her Broadway debut in Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Beth Henley’s revival of The Miss Firecracker Contest.

Directed by Tony Award winner Judith Ivey, the show will premiere on Broadway in the spring of 2013.

The show will alsomark Ivey’s Broadway debut as director. Broadway theater and dates to be announced.

The Miss Firecracker Contest is the inspiring story of Carnelle Scott (Tamblyn), a Southern orphan living in Brookhaven, Mississippi.  Carnelle is furiously rehearsing her patriotic tap dance for the Miss Firecracker Contest—hoping that a victory will salvage her tarnished reputation as the town’s “Miss Hot Tamale” and allow her to leave Brookhaven in a “crimson blaze of glory.” The unexpected arrival of her cousin Elain, a former Miss Firecracker Queen, (who has walked out on her rich but boring husband and two small children) and Elain’s eccentric brother, Delmount (recently released from a mental institution), threatens to derail Carnelle’s total makeover.  Carnelle perseveres—leading to a climax of hilarity, heart and radiant fireworks!
