Amber Tamblyn will make her Broadway debut in 2013 in 'The Miss Firecracker Contest.' Tamblyn has been seen on TV in 'House' and 'Joan of Arcadia' and on film in 'The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants' and '127 Hours.'
Producers said Tuesday that Tamblyn will make her debut in Beth Henley's comedy "The Miss Firecracker Contest" in the spring of 2013. The theater, co-stars and dates will be announced later.
The comedy, about a young woman who hopes winning a local talent contest will restore her soiled reputation, first appeared in New York off-Broadway in 1984 and was made into a 1989 film starring Holly Hunter, Mary Steenburgen and Tim Robbins.
