In a Lifetime Channel biopic set to air later this year, Jeremy Irons and Joan Allen star as the photographer Alfred Stieglitz and the painter Georgia O’Keefe. The two will be working together again in an art related project in the Broadway production of Michael Jacobs’ play “Impressionism”, much of which, is set in a New York art gallery. Both actors, who have not appeared on Broadway since the 1980s, will be playing multiple roles, including that of a photojournalist and a gallery owner. Large projected images of works of art, such as Mary Cassatt’s “Woman Bathing” and Marc Chagall’s “Bay of Angels”, among others, will be integral parts of the play’s set design.
