Peggy Olson is about to become a Broadway baby.
The New York Times reports that Mad Men star Elisabeth Moss will star in next spring's revival of The Heidi Chronicles on the Great White Way. The actress, who made her Broadway debut in 2008's Speed-the-Plow revival, will be playing the title role of an art historian growing up in the mid-to-late 1900s.
Joining her in the production will be Jason Biggs, currently starring in Orange Is the New Black, and Bryce Pinkham, who will be finishing up his run in A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder. Biggs will play Scoop Rosenbaum, a love interest for Moss' Heidi, while Pinkham's Peter Patrone is her gay friend.
The Heidi Chronicles first debuted in 1988 off-Broadway, transferring the next year. It won playwright Wendy Wasserstein the Pulitzer Prize, while the production won the Tony for Best Play. This revival is the first for any of Wasserstein's works.
Preview performances are set to begin in February, with the formal bow set for March. The run will coincide with Moss' final episodes of Mad Men, which will return early next year.
