MARY STUART STAR HARRIET WALTER AT DRAMA BOOK SHOP ON MAY 4

MARY STUART STAR
HARRIET WALTER
TO APPEAR AT DRAMA BOOK SHOP ON MAY 4

WALTER DISCUSSES ACCLAIMED PRODUCTION

OF SCHILLER’S CLASSIC PLAY AND HER BOOK, OTHER PEOPLE’S SHOES,

WITH THEATERMANIA’S DAVID FINKLE

Harriet Walter, who stars as Elizabeth I in the acclaimed new Broadway production of Friedrich Schiller’s MARY STUART, will speak on Monday, May 4 at 6:00 PM at The Drama Book Shop (250 West 40th Street).  In a conversation with TheaterMania’s chief theatre critic David Finkle, Walter will discuss her guide for actors, Other People’s Shoes, as well as the praised new version of Schiller’s MARY STUART, written by Peter Oswald.  The event is free and open to the public.  Seats are available on a first come, first served basis. 

Harriet Walter, considered one of England’s greatest classical actresses, is a three-time Olivier Award winner for her performances in Twelfth Night, A Question of Geography  and Three Sisters. Her film credits include the Academy Award-nominated Atonement, Babel and Sense & Sensibility.

Walter stars opposite Janet McTeer as Mary, Queen of Scots in the Donmar Warehouse production of MARY STUART, in a new version by Peter Oswald and directed by Phyllida Lloyd.  The production is playing at the Broadhurst Theatre (235 West 44th Street) for a limited engagement through August 16. 

Seduction, greed and deception lie at the heart of the bitter rivalry between Mary, Queen of Scots (Janet McTeer) and her cousin, Elizabeth I (Harriet Walter) of England. After being implicated in her husband’s murder, Mary turns to Elizabeth for help but finds her cousin distrustful of her motives. Thus begins a bloody feud that will threaten not just their family bond, but the crown of England… MARY STUART tells the story of two iconic women whose lust for power reveals one of the most thrilling displays of passion and politics the world has ever seen.

Joining Ms. McTeer and Ms. Walter, are Michael Countryman as Sir Amias Paulet; Adam Greer as O’Kelly; John Benjamin Hickey as Earl of Leicester; Michael Rudko as Count Aubespine/Melvil; Robert Stanton as William Davison; Maria Tucci as Hanna Kennedy; Chandler Williams as Mortimer; Nicholas Woodeson as Lord Burleigh and Brian Murray as Earl of Shrewsbury.   The company also features Jacqueline Antaramian, Tony Carlin, Monique Fowler and Guy Paul

The first Broadway production of MARY STUART in almost 40 years is produced by Arielle Tepper Madover, Debra Black, Neal Street Productions/Matthew Byam Shaw, Scott Delman, Barbara Whitman, Jean Doumanian/Ruth Hendel, David Binder/CarlWend Productions/Spring Sirkin, Daryl Roth/James L. Nederlander/Chase Miskin.

The production is designed by Anthony Ward, with lighting by Hugh Vanstone and sound by Paul Arditti.
