LOMBARDI’s JUDITH LIGHT FEATURED ON OUTSPORTS.COM
Judith Light is currently earning rave reviews for her performance as Marie Lombardi in Broadway’s LOMBARDI. Today, she is featured on Outsports.com speaking to reporter Cyd Zeigler about her current stage role and her work with the gay community.
“What could a play about the roughest, toughest, most legendary coach in NFL history have to do with a gay audience? You might be surprised, but there’s plenty in the current Broadway run of “Lombardi on Broadway” to keep theatergoers of any sexual orientation intrigued and entertained. At the top of that list is the performance of actress Judith Light who plays Vince’s wife, Marie. Light is best-known for her long-running stint as Angela Bower on the hit TV series, Who’s the Boss. Light has long been an advocate for the equality of gay and HIV-positive people. In fact, she said the overarching theme of Lombardi is exactly what drew her to the gay community in the late ‘80s and early ’90s.” To read the entire piece, CLICK HERE.
