Actress Mary-Louise Parker is heading to Broadway in a revival of Henrik Ibsen's famous play Hedda Gabler.

The Weeds actress will start her run at the American Airlines Theater in January 2009 - her first New York stage appearance since 2004's Reckless and eight years after she won a Tony Award for her performance in Proof.

Parker is following in impressive footsteps by taking on the role of the play's eponymous heroine.

Hedda Gabler was last played in New York by Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in 2006.
