Cate Blanchett heading to Broadway

WENN

Australian actress Cate Blanchett has become the latest big name to book a run on Broadway.

The Oscar-winning star is to return to the New York stage this summer in a production of Jean Genet's "The Maids" as part of the 2014 Lincoln Center Festival. She will star opposite French actress Isabelle Huppert in the show, which kicks off on August 6.

The pair previously opened the play in Sydney. Other big names to appear on Broadway recently include British actor Jude Law, "X-Men" co-stars Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen, and husband-and-wife team Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, while 2014 will feature appearances from pop star Carly Rae Jepsen in "Cinderella" and James Franco in "Of Mice and Men."

Cate Blanchett may very well snare an Oscar for Best Actress in a couple of months.  So, her debut in a Broadway play is like money in the bank, and tickets will be tough to get.  Blanchett is a fantastic actress, and I can't wait to see her in whatever she chooses to do!!!
