Glenn Close Looks Back on Her First Theater Role

5 April 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Glenn Close was a Power of Women honoree last year for her work on Bring Change 2 Mind. The actress has four films due this year and is currently onstage at the London Coliseum with “Sunset Blvd.,” running April 4-May 7. She was first mentioned in Variety on Oct. 30, 1974, for her Broadway debut.

That was your first professional role?

I got it right out of college. I had done a series of auditions with Urta, the University Resident Theatre Assn., and Tcg, Theatre Communications Group — all the university and non-profit groups. I got only one callback, for a theater in Texas. I was a little discouraged, I visited my parents in Wyoming, where there was no phone; when I went to get groceries, I called back east and got a week-old message but got a message to come audition for the New Phoenix Repertory. So I called and leapt on a plane. »
