No one from Dunaway's team has responded at request for comment.

Academy Award victor Faye Dunaway, 78, was sacked from a show heading for Broadway, "Tea at Five". They said the play, which was well received in Boston, would go to London in the spring and be recast with another actress.

Faye Dunaway played Katharine Hepburn in the one-woman play, "Tea At Five".

"Tea for Five" ran in Boston from June 22 through July 14, though at least one performance was canceled with little notice.

Dunaway was initially excited about the role and threw herself into her work.

According to the publication, "Tea At Five" was to be helmed by Tony-nominated director John Tillinger and would have been the 78-year-old Dunaway's first return to Broadway after a almost 40-year absence. She says she was watching her weight and the salad would be better on the floor than in her hand. Roman Polanski referred to her as "a huge pain in the ass" on the set of Chinatown, while Bette Davis said she was the worst person she had ever worked with, calling her "totally impossible".

She allegedly wasn't able to remember her lines, although she had access to the script for six months.

According to the star's Wikipedia Page, she is very protective of her private life and seldom gives interviews.

"Ninety-eight percent of the play came through the earpiece", said the source, while another crew member said that no one was allowed to wear white during rehearsals because it "distracts me", the actress was alleged to have said.

She had also reportedly exhibited other abnormal behavior previously in the early 1990s while acting as Maria Callas in a play called "Master Class" by Terrence McNally. She showed up an hour late for many performances. She demanded a rental auto from the hotel to get to the theater. "She was still living [then]", Mulgrew told Lola Ogunnaike on PeopleTV's Couch Surfing. "Your story sounds like a Fellini movie", she told me.
