Elisabeth Moss has been acting since she was a kid, but it wasn’t until a certain AMC drama came along that she became a household name. After spending seven years in the booze-and-misogyny-filled world of Mad Men, however, she’s branching out to the stage.
Moss will reportedly take on Broadway in a revival of the award-winning play The Heidi Chronicles, in which she’ll play the lead role in the coming of age story. And although it’s quite a change from the world she’s immersed herself in for Mad Men, it does begin in the 1960’s. The play tells a tale over the course of 20 years as Heidi learns about herself and the people around her.
The Heidi Chronicles will also star Orange Is The New Black actor Jason Biggs, among others, and will open in a limited run in February.
Although Moss has spent a lot of time cultivating her character Peggy Olson on the hit drama, she also has a long list of movie credits on her resume and starred last year in the award-winning series Top Of The Lake, in which she tried on a New Zealand accent.
You can see Moss next in the dark comedy Listen Up Philip, with Jason Schwartzman and Krysten Ritter.
