May 24-29 at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, “Private Practice” star Amy Brenneman, a Harvard alum, will return to the stage with her autobiographical one-woman show, “Mouth Wide Open.”
Brenneman first broke onto the scene as one of the original cast members of “NYPD Blue”. During her tenure there, she received two Emmy nominations and a SAG award as part of Best Ensemble, for her role as Janice Licalsi. She also created, produced and starred in “Judging Amy”, a show which took place in Hartford, Connecticut.
The show was inspired by Brenneman’s mother, a superior court judge, who was one of the first women to graduate from Harvard. Brenneman herself, was born in New London and raised in Glastonbury, Connecticut.
During its 6 seasons, Brenneman earned two TV Guide Awards, three Golden Globe Award nominations, a Producer’s Guild Nomination, three Emmy Award nominations, a People’s Choice Award nomination, and a nomination for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for her role as Judge Amy Gray. She currently stars in the ABC drama “Private Practice”.
The autobiographical stage show is full of humor and candor, and is described as “an epic journey that takes us to the place where illness and spirituality collide.” The show will be directed by Sabrina Peck.
