NEW YORK (AP) - Academy Award winner Estelle Parsons and Tony Award winner Stephen Spinella will take their dark comedy "The Velocity of Autumn" to Broadway.

Producers said Thursday that playwright Eric Coble's play about a feisty elderly woman in a showdown with her family over where she should live has found a home at the Booth Theatre. Previews begin April 1.

The play, with the same two leads, was a hit at the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C., this year.

Parsons, who was on TV's "Roseanne," plays an artist who barricades herself in her apartment in a faceoff with her children. Her long-lost son, played by Spinella, sneaks in through a window and a showdown really begins.
