Speaking of Shakespeare
With Actress Dana Ivey
Dana Ivey, who won an Obie Award when she created the title role in an
Off-Broadway "Driving Miss Daisy" (1986-87), and has also been honored
for her work in "Quartermaine's Terms," "Heartbreak House," and "Sunday
in the Park with George," is now in rehearsal for the role of Mistress
Quickly in a Lincoln Center Theater production of "Henry IV" that will
be directed by Jack O'Brien, star Kevin Kline as Falstaff, and feature
such additional luminaries as Billy Crudup, Richard Easton, Ethan Hawke,
and Audra McDonald. Ms. Ivey played Gertrude to Kevin Kline's title
character in a 1990 "Hamlet," directed by the star for the New York
Shakespeare Festival, that was later telecast over PBS. She has also
appeared in numerous films -- among them "The Addams Family," "The Color
Purple," "Dirty Rotten Scandals," "Home Alone 2," "The Impostors," "The
Kid," and "Sabrina." On television she's been featured in "Easy Street,"
"Frasier," "Homicide," "A Lesson Before Dying," and "Oz."
Ms. Ivey will talk about her many roles on stage and screen in a
conversation at 8:00 p.m. on Monday, October 20, at the National Arts
Club, 15 Gramercy Park South, in New York City. The program will be
followed at 9:15 by a dessert reception in the Club's beautiful lounge.
The price for members of The Shakespeare Guild is $15; the non-member
