Meryl Streep to lead ‘Master Class’

Been a little distracted this week, what with all the hats at Royal Ascot and all, but here’s a bit of delightful news for all: Meryl Streep will be playing opera legend Maria Callas in an upcoming HBO movie version of Terrence McNally’s play “Master Class.” Mike Nichols will direct, continuing a longtime association with Streep that also includes collaborating on “Angels in America,” “Postcards from the Edge,” “Heartburn” and “Silkwood.” The play, set in 1971, depicts Callas interacting with students at the Juilliard School. It’s the latest in a string of musical roles for Streep, who’ll be seen as the witch in the musical “Into the Woods” at Christmastime, and will next play a rock’n’roll singer — opposite her daughter Mamie Gummer — in “Ricki and the Flash.”
