Paul McGann has joined the cast of the Eugene O'Neill play "Mourning Becomes Electra," opening November 17 at the Lytteton theatre. McGann joins Oscar and Tony nominated actress Dame Helen Mirren (best known as Jane Tennison in the "Prime Suspect" television films), West End regular Clarke Peters and actress Eve Best in the play which "explores the wildly destructive forces of jealousy and desire unleashed when Lavinia discovers that her mother, the intoxicating Christine Mannon, has dared to take a young lover." Bookings for the play have begun; more details are available here. (Thanks to Paul Vazquez)
