Rosemary Harris to star in Stoppard's 'Indian Ink'

NEW YORK (AP) — Rosemary Harris has been lured back onto a New York stage for the upcoming revival of Tom Stoppard's "Indian Ink."

The Roundabout Theatre Company said Tuesday that Harris will star in the romantic tale, with performances to begin Sept. 4 at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. It follows a free-spirited poet on her travels through India in the 1930s against the backdrop of a country seeking independence. Harris will play the poet's sister.

Harris won a Tony Award in 1967 for "The Lion in Winter" and earned an Oscar nomination for "Tom & Viv," but may be best known as Aunt May in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" films. Her last Broadway show was Athol Fugard's play "The Road to Mecca" in 2012.
