"Duffy holds her own in `Little Foxes' By Michelle J. Mills, Staff Writer Posted: 05/28/2009 03:54:01 PM PDT

Kelly McGillis, as Regina Giddens, during a dress rehearsal for the play 'Little Foxes', at the Pasadena Playhouse, in Pasadena, Wednesday, May 20, 2009.

Julia Duffy began her career in soap operas, including 'One Life to Live,' but is best known for her role as Stephanie Vanderkellen in CBS's "Newhart.' Her character was pert and preppy and her inner sweetness shined through. This is not unlike her new role on the Pasadena Playhouse stage as Birdie Hubbard in Lillian Hellman's 'The Little Foxes.'

'The Little Foxes' opened on Broadway in 1939. Set in Demopolis, Ala., in 1900, the work focuses on a family whose members are scheming against each other in a grab for money to support a business opportunity.

'But beyond the level of greed and what it does to people, I think it says a lot about shift of power within families, within social structures and a bit about women, a gender power shift that was beginning,' Duffy said."
