Bing: More on Edie Falco

"The Sopranos" star has landed the lead role in "The Madrid," written by "Nurse Jackie" scriptwriter Liz Flahive, and admits she is thrilled to be back onstage in New York. The Emmy Award winner grew up accompanying her mom to rehearsals at their community theater, and now Falco's own children, Anderson, 8, and Macy, 5, often hang out with her at the Manhattan Theater Club.

"I love it more than anything (the theatre)," she told the New York Daily News. "(And) there's no bad language (in the play). It's very G-rated. My kids come and hang out at the theatre."

"The Madrid" is due to launch later this month and runs until April.
