Liv Ullmann is planning to direct her own translation of Henrik Ibsen’s classic A Doll’s House on Broadway, the actress/director revealed during an interview on The Leonard Lopate Show. No possible dates, casting or theater have been announced at this time.
“[The production] will encompass everything I care about—Ibsen, Nora, everything she stood for—I will translate it myself,” Ullmann said.
Ullmann starred as Nora Helmer in the 1975 Broadway production of A Doll’s House. The classic drama has been staged on Broadway 13 times, most recently with a 1997 Tony-winning revival that starred Janet McTeer as Nora.
In addition to A Doll's House, Ullmann has appeared on Broadway in I Remember Mama, Ghosts and Anna Christie. She is well known for her 42 year-year long relationship with acclaimed Swedish film director Ingmar Bergman, which is the subject of the new documentary film Liv and Ingmar.
