Jessica Chastain: Broadway Bound in 'The Heiress'!

Jessica Chastain is making her Broadway debut this fall!

The 30-year-old actress, who most recently appeared in The Debt, Take Shelter, and Coriolanus, will be starring in The Heiress.

The play centers around “a plain spinster named Catherine Sloper, a gold-digger suitor, a blunt father and a family home with a good view of Washington Square,” Playbill reports.

“I was immediately struck by Jessica‘s talent and skill when I saw her on stage opposite Al Pacino in Salome. She is an actress with that rare ability to transition effortlessly between the stage and screen. MoisĂ©s Kaufman had the vision to see Jessica as the perfect actress to play one of the great psychologically complex female characters,” producer Paula Wagner said in a statement.

    She is so absolutely lucky. We see so often talented people being ignored for talentless seat fillers. I’m glad to see her get the opportunities she deserves.
