Kate Mulgrew (Janeway) has contributed to a new book to raise awareness of and money seeking a cure for Alzheimer's disease, and will also appear in a one-night-only performance of "a look at three of the most spirited women in history" before her debut in the world premiere of Our Leading Lady.
Mulgrew's official web site, Totally Kate!, has news on both projects. Voices of Alzheimer's, a publication of The Healing Project, will contain stories about people dealing with the devastating illness to which Mulgrew lost her mother last year.
The book is intended to offer knowledge and comfort to readers and to raise money for volunteer work and research. A PDF file with an excerpt of Mulgrew's chapter is here.
Mulgrew's appearance in History Girls will take place at Hunter College's Kaye Playhouse on Monday, February 12th. The three women referred to by the title are Constance from Shakespeare's King John, Elizabeth from Richard III and Margaret from Henry VI, Part 3 and Richard III. Mulgrew will perform along with several other actors, including her Royal Family co-star Marian Seldes.
Information about the production may be found at The Shakespeare Society's web site, while tickets may be purchased by calling (212) 772-4448.
Beginning on February 22nd, Mulgrew will star in Our Leading Lady at New York City Center's Stage II. As previously reported, the actress will play Laura Keane, a performer at Ford's Theatre on the night of Abraham Lincoln's assassination.
