NEW YORK (AP) _ Woody Allen is ready to put his new wife in the spotlight.

Allen, 62, is writing an off-Broadway play in which 27-year-old Soon-Yi Previn would have a role, the New York Post reported Wednesday.

Allen is keeping the name and plot a secret, but friends said that the play will be set in New York and that Ms. Previn would have a supporting role, the Post reported. She has been taking acting lessons since October, the paper said.

Allen and Ms. Previn married last week in Venice, Italy.

Ms. Previn is the adopted daughter of actress Mia Farrow, Allen's former girlfriend.
