Synopsis: "The Parisian Woman is setáin Washington, D.C., where powerful friends are the only kind worth having,áespecially after the 2016 election. At the center is Chloe (Uma Thurman), a socialite armed with charm and wit, coming toáterms 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 stakes couldn't be higher."

Additional casting and creative team information, as well as a first preview date, will be announced shortly.

The Parisian Woman is produced on Broadway by Marc Routh, Richard Frankel, Tom Viertel, Steven Baruch, and Steve Traxler.
