I can't believe both of these women are in the same play!!!
I wonder if Rachel is going to do any more TV? I always waited to see her in each episode. I know nothing about acting, but I feel like she and Patricia Clarkson are two actresses that seem to do something special every time I see them.
And I just saw Grease recently again, Stockard Channing, you rock!
