'Guiding Light' Emmy Winner Ellen Parker to Star in "20th Century Blues"

Guiding Light alum Ellen Parker, who won an Emmy for her portrayal of Maureen Bauer on the iconic soap opera, is set to star in "20th Century Blues," the new play by Indie Series Award winner Susan Miller that is making its New York premiere in November. The 10-week limited engagement will begin November 12.

Directed by Tony nominee Emily Mann, "20th Century Blues" is described as follows:

A Ted Talk. A photo shoot. A test of friendship. And a bond that connects four women who meet once a year to have their pictures taken in a ritual that chronicles their changing (and aging) selves as they navigate through love, careers, children, and the complications of history. But, when these private photographs have the potential to go public, relationships are strained, forcing the women to confront who they are, what they’ve become, and how they’ll deal with whatever lies ahead. From the author of My Left Breast, Susan Miller’s 20th Century Blues is the sharply funny and evocative new play that questions our place in the world and with one another.

Also starring are Beth Dixon (The Good Wife), Helen Hayes Award winner Franchelle Stewart Dorn (‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore), Emmy nominee Polly Draper (thirtysomething), two-time Obie winner Kathryn Grody (Top Girls) and Charles Socarides (Sons of the Prophet).

Performances are scheduled through January 28, 2018. Tickets are available at
