November 9, 2012

(AP) Academy Award-winner Holly Hunter is hoping to rip up the stage when she stars off-Broadway in a new play by Hamish Linklater.

The Flea Theatre said Friday the actress from such films as Broadcast News and Raising Arizona will be in The Vandal from Jan. 18-Feb. 17.

The play will also star Zach Grenier and Noah Robbins. Jim Simpson will direct. The Flea says the new work is a play about death and vandalism in Kingston, N.Y.

Hunter, who also starred in the TV series Saving Grace, was last off-Broadway in Impossible Marriage in 1998 and played the Mystery Guest Star in The Play What I Wrote on Broadway in 2003.
