Mrs. Warren’s Profession star Cherry Jones and Director Doug Hughes will be featured on WNYC’s “The Leonard Lopate Show” on Thursday, October 7th from 12:00-12:30PM on 93.9FM and AM 820.
Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) is pleased to present the new Broadway production of George Bernard Shaw’s play Mrs. Warren’s Profession, starring Tony® Award winner Cherry Jones as “Kitty Warren” & Golden Globe winner Sally Hawkins making her Broadway debut as “Vivie Warren”, directed by Tony® Award winner Doug Hughes at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd St). The cast also features Adam Driver as “Frank Gardner”, Mark Harelik as “Sir George Crofts”, Edward Hibbert as “Mr. Praed” & Michael Siberry as “Reverend Samuel Gardner”.
Mrs. Warren’s Profession opened officially on Sunday, October 3rd, 2010. This is a limited engagement through Sunday, November 28th, 2010.
George Bernard Shaw’s scorching tour de force Mrs. Warren’s Profession tells the story of Kitty Warren (Jones), a mother who makes a terrible sacrifice for her daughter Vivie’s (Hawkins) independence. The clash of these two strong-willed but culturally constrained women is the spark that ignites the ironic wit of one of Shaw’s greatest plays.
Tickets are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212)719-1300, online at www.roundabouttheatre.org or at the American Airlines Box Office (227 West 42nd Street). Ticket prices range from $67.00-117.00.
