MRS. WARREN’S PROFESSION concludes limited enagagement Sunday 11/28

ROUNDABOUT THEATRE COMPANY

MRS. WARREN’S PROFESSION

Concludes limited engagement this Sunday, November 28th at 2:00PM

“Cherry Jones does not nearly glow, she glitters. She is as illuminating as ever, confirming her reputation as an actress of not only formidable charisma but also meticulous craft.”

– Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“Fireworks! Cherry Jones and Sally Hawkins are first-rate!  Director Doug Hughes has turned a 100-year-old play relevant, urgent & subversive!” -Mark Kennedy, Associated Press

on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre

Roundabout Theatre Company’s Broadway production of Mrs. Warren’s Profession, starring Cherry Jones as “Kitty Warren” & Sally Hawkins as “Vivie Warren” will end its limited engagement on Sunday, November 28th at 2:00PM.

Mrs. Warren’s Profession will have played 35 previews and 65 regular performances at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street).

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”.

The design team includes Scott Pask (Sets), Catherine Zuber (Costumes), Kenneth Posner (Lights) & David Van Tieghem (Sound).

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).

Cherry Jones and Sally Hawkins team up to make Shaw’s ‘Mrs Warren’s Profession’ relevant again

By Mark Kennedy

NEW YORK, N.Y. — George Bernard Shaw’s “Mrs. Warren’s Profession” hasn’t had a happy life. An early work by the playwright, it was banned virtually as soon as it was written and has never been considered among his best. Even Shaw labeled it one of his “plays unpleasant.”

A new revival by the Roundabout Theatre Company, then, comes as a happy surprise. Helmed by Doug Hughes and starring Cherry Jones and Sally Hawkins, the work is made urgent and subversive.

By Mark Kennedy

NEW YORK, N.Y. — When Cherry Jones met Doug Hughes for dinner several months ago at a restaurant in the West Village, its wasn’t just to break bread. Each had an agenda.

Hughes, the Tony Award-winning director, wanted to lure Jones back to Broadway with his version of the George Bernard Shaw play “Mrs. Warren’s Profession.” Jones, the Tony Award-winning actress, was being coy.

“He took me out to dinner and I didn’t know which way I was going to go. It was going to be the first time I was going to be back on stage in four years,” she says during a joint interview with Hughes.
