'GRADUATE' to Appear on Broadway

NEW YORK (AP) _ Mrs. Robinson is coming to Broadway.

Kathleen Turner will play the seductive older woman in a stage version of ``The Graduate,'' adapted by Terry Johnson from the cult novel by Charles Webb and the hit 1967 movie that starred Anne Bancroft and Dustin Hoffman.

Jason Biggs of ``American Pie'' fame will portray Benjamin Braddock, the young man she seduces. Alicia Silverstone co-stars as Mrs. Robinson's daughter, Elaine, the role played in the movie by Katharine Ross.

The stage production will begin a pre-Broadway tour in Baltimore in January before moving to Toronto, Ontario, and Boston. ``The Graduate'' begins preview performances in New York March 15 with an opening set for April 4 at a theater to be announced.

Turner, star of such movies as ``Body Heat'' and ``Peggy Sue Got Married,'' originated the role of Mrs. Robinson in the London production of ``The Graduate,'' which opened in April 2000 and is still running. In England, the show has gone through a variety of Mrs. Robinsons including Jerry Hall, Amanda Donohoe and Anne Archer. It now stars Linda Gray, best-known as Sue Ellen Ewing of television's ``Dallas.''
