'Maria Full of Grace' Star Joins Broderick in 'Starry Messenger' Premiere

Catalina sandino m0reno_purple dress Catalina Sandino Moreno will star opposite Matthew Broderick in the world premiere of The Starry Messenger, Kenneth Lonergan's new play about "an astronomy teacher whose midlife crisis is thrown into relief by an unexpected affair that changes everything."

Lonergan says he wrote the new play specifically for Broderick, since they both took an astronomy class together at the Hayden Planetarium as high school students in NYC. Lonergan will also direct the Off-Broadway production. 

Colombian-born actress Moreno was nominated for a 2005 Academy Award for her performance in Maria Full of Grace.

Previews are scheduled to begin in Oct., but no official dates have been set.
