Will Third Time on Broadway Yield Tony Charm for Hoffman?

Will Third Time on Broadway Yield Tony Charm for Hoffman?

One of the most arguably versatile actors of our age is reportedly ready to return to Broadway for his third time. Academy Award winner and two-time Tony nominee Philip Seymour Hoffmann will make his way back to the Great White Way to star in Michael Weller's 50 Words.

Hoffman previously tread the boards in acclaimed performances in True West (2000) and Long Day's Journey Into Night (2003); he was Tony nominated for his roles in both plays. I had an opportunity to see the latter -- the heartbreaking, Tony Award-winning revival of Eugene O'Neill's most autobiographical work. The much-praised production famously starred Vanessa Redgrave and Brian Dennehy along with Robert Sean Leonard. All gave magnificent, nuanced performances.

Hoffman will reportedly make his return once his enormously busy schedule frees up. I have no doubt it will be worth the wait.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
