Veteran actresses Mia Farrow, Carol Burnett and Anjelica Huston are set to hit the Broadway stage in a revival of A.r. Gurney's romantic play Love Letters. Farrow will make her first appearance on the Great White Way in nine years in September (14), when she will feature opposite Brian Dennehy in the two-person show, about letters exchanged over the years between two childhood friends.
She will depart on 10 October (14) to make way for Burnett, who will co-star with Dennehy until 7 November (14).
The changing monthly line-up will continue with M*A*S*H star Alan Alda and Murphy Brown's Candice Bergen, before Stacy Keach and Diana Rigg take over in early December (14).
The production will close on 1 February (14) with Martin Sheen and Huston playing respective characters Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner.
Gregory Mosher will direct the Pulitzer Prize-nominated play at the Nederlander Theatre.
Love Letters originally debuted on Broadway in 1989 with Colleen Dewhurst and Jason Robards.
Last night on the Duck Dynasty Season 3 finale, A&E's first family of rednecks went to Hawaii. They did not find a cursed idol like Greg Brady. No, they actually beat an idol; they beat it right into the ground. In the ratings that is!
The show clocked 9.6 million viewers, which is not only a giant audience for cable, but a giant audience anywhere. 5.5 million of those viewers were in the prized 18-to-49 year-old demographic that advertisers crave like a man with a giant beard eating an ice cream cone craves a napkin. In the demographic, which is really all that matters, Duck Dynasty not only defeated every show on cable, but also every show on the major networks, including former ratings juggernaut American Idol.
Yes, but who the heck are these nearly 10 million people? The same ones watching The Bible, NCIS, Two and a Half Men, and every other show out there media elites find ridiculous that the public just loves. 632,000 people watched the second season finale of Girls. Just sayin'.

It's been months, absolutely months, since we've been doled out a dose of the greatest American tragedy that is on television today. Yes, I am absolutely shaking with joy (or is that withdrawal?) that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is coming back November 5 and that Bravo finally released a trailer for the upcoming season. We have all sorts of things to look forward too (most of them related to Kim Richards and her face lined with survival, regret, and the cheap makeup that she fished out of a dumpster) but here are 31 things from the trailer that really got my lap dog barking. –Kyle Richards being attacked by meat.
–Suzanne Somers talking about her lady parts.
–Kim Richards. Not anything specific, just Kim Richards.
–St. Camille Grammer making out with a hot dude who may or may not be a statue come to life.
–Kyle Richards shoving her coochie in the air, again.
–Paul Nasiff in Maloof hoofs.
–Lisa Vanderpump in a girly swing that looks like it's from some fake Victorian masterwork that your great grandmother had in her parlor.
–Ken and Lisa engaging in the sacred Real Housewives ritual of renewing their vows. It looks chi chi chi chi chi chi.
–Ken being wheeled on a gurney. Heart attack or plastic surgery (and am I going to hell for asking)?
–Watching Kim Richards get a nose job on live (taped) television.
–Watching Kim Richards in recovery. No, from the nose job!
–Watching Kim Richards smoke an electronic cigarette. All students of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills know the electronic cigarette bestows magic psychic powers on the smoker.
–Brandi Glanville confronting the other woman.
–Brandi Glanville crying, the saddest sight in the world.
–There's no Dana/Pam. Where is Dana/Pam? Should I be excited that she is gone? I am conflicted.
–Kim and Kyle Richards talking about recovery, not from a nose job edition.
–Kim Richards relapse scare!
–You see that lady who appears to be Alex McCord's wealthier younger sister. That is in fact a new housewife named Marisa Zanuck. She works with Kyle's husband Mauricio. She doesn't say or do much though, so she may be boring.
–There is another new housewife, Yolanda H. Foster. The H stands for "hatred" because she does not like Adrienne Maloof, the queen of the Maloof people that live under the mountain. Oh no, she does not.
–The H also stands for hatred of Taylor Armstrong, who Yolanda H. Foster also hates. Hates!
–Speaking of Taylor, she's in a fight with some old gay pianist. Is that Michael Feinstein? They all look the same.
–Lisa and Brandi are allies now!
–Paul is going to come for Brandi. Brandi will win.
–The gesticulating football that is Faye Resnick!
–Everyone hates Paul, who looks like a Great Dane who learned to walk on two legs (and in high heels).
–Real Househusbands fighting.
–Adrienne's house is on fire.
–No, I mean the house is actually on fire with flames, and not of hatred Miss White style.
–Kim Richards, at one point during the season, is going to be compelled to say, in a sexy voice, "Boom boom she bang." I don't know what would compel her to do this, but it is, already, the highlight of my year.
