It’s hard to imagine anything that Judith Light hasn’t done, but now she is about to embark on her own new one-woman show off-Broadway beginning on September 6th.
The play entitled “All The Ways To Say I Love You,” is about love, hard choices and the cost of fulfilling all-consuming desires. In it, Judith plays the role of a retired high school English teacher and guidance counselor in a loving marriage. Light’s character recounts her past experiences, revealing the truth beneath the many details of her life.
Soap fans know her as Karen Wolek from One Life to Live, and primetime TV audiences as Angela from Who’s the Boss, or her roles on Ugly Betty, and TNT’s Dallas, and now her Emmy-nominated role on Amazon Prime’s Transparent. Light is already a two-time Daytime Emmy and Tony winner. Now in a new interview promoting her one-woman show with ABC’s Good Morning America, Judith opens up about her career which she has gotten better as she has matured.
She related: “I have gotten more interesting parts as I have matured.” Light also thinks the perception of an aging actress in Hollywood and show business is changing: “The more women who are speaking about it and talking about themselves as mature instead of hiding it or trying to closet it, in some way we’re making a path forward for the women who are younger in the business.”
As for her new one-woman show, Light says there is indeed “stage fright” and performing in this type of situation is “daunting”, but as her legions of fans know, there isn’t one role or medium that Judith can’t tackle with stunning verve!
“All The Ways To Say I Love You” will be performed at the MCC Theater in New York City. Watch Light’s GMA segment after the jump.
