The Broadway revival of The Heiress, starring Jessica Chastain, David Strathairn, Dan Stevens and Judith Ivey, will now play its final performance on Saturday, February 9th at 7pm.
It was previously scheduled to end that Sunday the 10th but that performance was cancelled to let Chastain attend the BAFTA Awards (the British equivalent to the Academy Awards) where she is nominated for Best Actress. The awards show is on that Sunday in London.
Chastain is also nominated for an Academy Award and has already received Golden Globe and Critics Choice Awards for her performance in the film Zero Dark Thirty.
The Heiress is currently playing at Broadway’s Walter Kerr Theatre (219 W. 48th St. NYC).
I saw the show back in December and liked it a lot. Chastain was great and it was a role I hadn’t seen her play yet so if you get a chance, definitely check it out.
