New in 2017 Oscar nominee Uma Thurman stars as a socialite navigating the dangerous waters of Washington, D.C. politics in a new play by "House of Cards" creator Beau Willimon. Begins November 7th.
From the producers: "The Parisian Woman" is set in Washington, D.C., where powerful friends are the only kind worth having, especially after the 2016 election. At the center is Chloe, a socialite armed with charm and wit, coming to terms with politics, her past, her marriage and an uncertain future. Dark humor and drama collide at this pivotal moment in Chloe's life, and in our nation's, when the truth isn't obvious and the stakes couldn’t be higher.
Author Beau Willimon is an Oscar and Emmy Award nominee best known as the creator of the Netflix original series "House of Cards," serving as showrunner for the first four seasons. "The Parisian Woman," inspired by Henry Becque's late 19th century comedy "La Parisienne," was commissioned and developed by The Flea Theater in New York City and was originally produced by South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa, California. The play has since gone through significant rewrites to reflect the changing political climate. Here are some highlights from the South Coast Rep production:
Oscar nominee Uma Thurman ("Pulp Fiction," "Kill Bill parts 1 & 2") makes her Broadway debut with this production. She is joined on stage by Josh Lucas ("The Glass Menagerie") and Tony Award winner Blair Brown ("Orange Is The New Black," "Copenhagen"). Tony Award nominee Pam MacKinnon ("Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?," "Clybourne Park") directs.
