Glenda Jackson is reportedly in talks to star in 'King Lear' on Broadway.
The 80-year-old award-winning actress - who plays the role of Lear, traditionally played by a man - made her theatrical comeback last month after 23 years when she took to the stage at London's Old Vic Theatre but there are talks about Glenda continuing her role if it heads to Broadway.
The actress impressed critics and fans alike with her portrayal of the Shakespearean character and received a series of great reviews about her return to the stage. She spent her time away from the theatre and even had a stint in parliament.
Old Vic producers have teamed up with Sonia Friedman, Bob Bartner and Scott Rudin to see what sort of availability might be available in London's West End and on Broadway in New York next year.
Meanwhile, Glenda is said to be ''excited'' about the prospect but there could be a slight problem to overcome first in the form of keeping the current cast together.
Celia Imrie, Jane Horrocks and Morfyd Clark are looking at their schedules to see if they can fit things in. However, the younger cast members are expected to be on board, the Daily Mail newspaper reports.
A spokesperson for the Old Vic stressed that ''nothing is confirmed'' at this stage.
