The 71 year-old actress, who opens on Broadway in the play 33 Variations on March 9, has just started a blog and decided to take on Bernie Madoff, the Ponzi scammer who allegedly cost investors about $50 billion.
"I was thinking today on my way to the theater how grateful I am just to be working, never mind doing something really exciting," she blogged. "So many aren't. I ache when I read about the layoffs. I've lost a lot but it's nothing compared to friends of mine who have lost everything they had because every penny they saved over their entire lifetimes was invested in one of Madoff's schemes. I read a few days ago that Madoff was complaining that he felt like a prisoner in his own penthouse! I want to shake him till his teeth fall out. No matter what happens once this play opens, I won't be complaining. I feel blessed."
Previews of 33 Variations begin February 9 and the play runs through May 24th. Co-stars are Colin Hanks, Susan Kellerman, Samantha Mathis, and Don Amendolia.
