Uma Thurman makes her Broadway debut in The Parisian Woman
Beau Willimon's The Parisian Woman begins previews at the Hudson Theatre tonight.
The Broadway premiere of The Parisian Woman - a new play by Oscar and Emmy Award nominee and creator of "House of Cards" Beau Willimon - begins previews at Broadway's Hudson Theatre tonight. An official opening is set for November 30, with the limited engagement running through to March 11, 2018.
Directed by Tony Award nominee Pam MacKinnon, the production marks the Broadway debut for Academy Award nominee Uma Thurman who stars as Chloe. She is joined on stage by Josh Lucas (as Tom), Tony Award winner Blair Brown (as Jeanette Simpson), "Lord of the Rings" star Marton Csokas (as Peter) and Tony Award nominee Phillipa Soo (as Rebecca).
Synopsis: "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 (Uma Thurman), 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 stakes couldn't be higher."
The creative team behind The Parisian Woman features scenic design by Tony winner Derek McLane, costume design by Tony winner Jane Greenwood, lighting design by Tony winner Peter Kaczorowski, sound design & original composition by Broken Chord, and projection design by Darrel Maloney.
The Parisian Woman is produced on Broadway by Marc Routh, Richard Frankel, Tom Viertel, Steven Baruch, and Steve Traxler.
