Ten Chimneys finds replacement for Redgrave


GENESEE DEPOT, Wis. (AP) -- Ten Chimneys Foundation says it has found a replacement for Lynn Redgrave in its Lunt-Fontanne Fellowship program.

The 67-year-old actress died earlier this month at her home in Kent, Conn. She had been diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002.

She served as Master Teacher for the weeklong program for actors last year for its inaugural year at Ten Chimneys and this year was to be her final appearance.

Ten Chimneys says renowned Shakespeare expert and director, Barry Edelstein, will take her place. Actress Olympia Dukakis will take the position for the 2011 Lunt-Fontanne Fellowship Program.

Ten Chimneys is the former summer home of late theater greats Lynn Fontanne and Alfred Lunt. It's in Genesee Depot, a small town about 30 miles west of Milwaukee, where Lunt was born.
