Tyne Daly will reprise her Broadway role in Terrence McNally's Master Class when it arrives in London's West End. The Cagney & Lacey star will play opera singer Maria Callas in the play at the Vaudeville Theatre from 21 January.
Stephen Wadsworth's production was a sell-out when it opened on Broadway earlier this year. The original 1995 version won the best play Tony.
The 65-year-old's Broadway credits include Gypsy: A Musical Fable, for which she won the Tony Award for best leading actress in a musical in 1990.
Daly's Cagney and Lacey co-star Sharon Gless is currently starring on the London stage in A Round-Heeled Woman.
