Julia Burnishes Fag-Hag Cred


Julia_1 Openly gay Broadway mega-director Joe Mantello (Wicked, Take Me Out, Glengarry "Glenn Close") has bagged pretty woman Julia Roberts for his next show, a revival of 1997's Three Days of Rain.  Mantello's Odd Couple revival with Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick is slated to open in October.

"Three Days of Rain" is just the latest revival to tap Hollywood talent for a limited run, a list that includes Denzel Washington ("Julius Caesar"), Jessica Lange ("The Glass Menagerie") and Kathleen Turner ("Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"), who all appeared on Broadway last season.
