Anna Gunn Is Marie Curie in Alan Alda’s Radiance, Opening Nov. 9 in L.A.

(Kenneth Jones, Playbill) The world premiere of Alan Alda’s Radiance: The Passion of Marie Curie, shining a light on the conflicts in the life and work of the first woman to be awarded a Nobel Prize, opens Nov. 9 following previews from Nov. 1 at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles. Anna Gunn plays the title role of the Polish-born ground-breaker, who is a hero to science buff Alda.

Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan (Proof, Rabbit Hole) directs the play, which runs to Dec. 10 at Geffen’s Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater in Los Angeles.

Gunn previously appeared at the Geffen Playhouse in the world premiere of Donald Margulies’ Time Stands Still and is a star of AMC’s “Breaking Bad.” Her Radiance castmates include Natacha Roi (a veteran of Magic Theatre and South Coast Rep), John de Lancie (“Q” on “Star Trek” and a “Days of Our Lives” veteran), Ovation Award winner Hugo Armstrong, Don Donohue (an Oregon Shakespeare vet), Leonard Kelly-Young (a Santa Barbara Independent Theatre Award winner) and Sarah Zimmerman (Broadway’s The Rivals and The Full Monty).
