Frances McDormand Heading to Broadway

By

Perhaps to balance out her upcoming role in Transformers 3, Frances McDormand has added something arty to her schedule. The Oscar winner will return to Broadway in the world premiere production of Good People, a new play from Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole). McDormand will play a South Boston woman who has lost her job and takes up with an old fling. Good news for McDormand: the bar for Boston accents these days is pretty low! [Playbill]
