Ralph Fiennes, who won a Tony for his performance as Hamlet in 1995 (I know don't anything about theater but I saw that show twice, and the man so good it was almost scary), will be returning the The Great White Way this spring as the star of the Booth Theater's revival of Faith Healer. The play - written by Brian Friel - tells the story of "Frank Hardy, a faith healer; his loyal companion, Grace, and [Hardy's] devoted manager" via a series of monologues. And, as if this production didn't already sound tantalizing enough, Grace will be played by the unspeakably brilliant, two-time Tony winner Cherry Jones, while Ian McDiarmid - no slouch himself - is set to play the manager.

The show opens May 4 - it looks like Julia Roberts has herself a little competition for the cinema fan's Broadway buck.
