Noomi Rapace Takes on 7 Different Roles in 'What Happened To Monday' - Watch Now!

Noomi Rapace plays seven different characters in the new trailer for Netflix’s What Happened To Monday and the trailer just debuted!

Here’s a synopsis: In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic “One Child Policy,” seven identical sisters live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau. The Bureau, directed by the fierce Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close), enforces a strict family-planning agenda that the sisters outwit by taking turns assuming the identity of one person: Karen Settman (Rapace). Taught by their grandfather (Willem Dafoe) who raised and named them – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday – each can go outside once a week as their common identity, but are only free to be themselves in the prison of their own apartment. That is until, one day, Monday does not come home…

What Happened To Monday is set to debut on August 18th!

Glenn Close Stops Show to Scold Photo-Taking Audience Member

Heads up to anyone going to see Glenn Close in the Broadway musical Sunset Boulevard – put your cameras away!

The 70-year-old actress is currently reprising her role as Norma Desmond in the classic musical and she stopped the show on Wednesday (May 24) when an audience member was snapping photos during the performance.

ā€œIā€™m sorry. Stop the show. Someone there is taking photos. You must know how distracting and disrespectful that is. Now, we can have a show or we can have a photo shoot,” she told the crowd, according to Page Six.

Glenn then continued the performance from the top of the song “With One Look.”

Taking photos in a Broadway theater is strictly prohibited by New York law. Patti LuPone, who originated the role in Sunset Boulevard, is famous for berating an audience member who took photos at a performance of the musical Gypsy back in 2009.
