At Sundance, actress Glenn Close announces she's planning to do a play in the fall

PARK CITY, Utah - Glenn Close is returning to theatre after more than 15 years — and it won't be in a musical.

"I am planning a play in the fall," Close said in an interview Monday at the Sundance Film Festival, where she's promoting the film "Low Down."

The 66-year-old actress wouldn't say what play she's joining in advance of the official announcement.

"I'm not sure what the producer's plan is. I think he might want more of a cast before," Close said.

However, she hinted: "The world that it is in is a world I know very well. It's just a very complex play. It's very challenging. It's like somebody said, 'A mountain of a play.' I'm not coming back in a musical."

Close, a three-time Tony winner, started in theatre before moving to film and TV, including the series "Damages." She last appeared on Broadway in "Sunset Boulevard."

    Saw her in "The Real Thing" with Jeremy Irons in NYC in the early 1980s. She was excellent. This is great news.
