Dame Edna returns to Broadway
Dame Edna Everage. Australia’s most famous and partly Jewish housewife, returns to Broadway in March next year.
The show will be directed by four-time Emmy winner Jerry Zaks.
In her bio, Dame Edna claims she is Jewish in ‘a former life’. In a 2007 interview with showbiz magazine ‘Heat’, she admitted to being ‘partly Jewish’. Living in London at the time, Dame Edna told the magazine that she got on very well with North London people. She added: “My background was not spoken of but I could play canasta without anyone teaching me..so I thought ‘well I must be Jewish’.”
This will be Dame Edna’s third Broadway appearance. Her previous two have won her one Tony award and a Tony nomination.
