The Parisian Woman begins preview performances today, November 9, at the Hudson Theatre with the opening night set for November 30. “Pulp Fiction” Oscar nominee Uma Thurman makes her Broadway debut in the starring role.
“Academy Award® nominee UMA THURMAN stars in THE PARISIAN WOMAN, a new play written by Academy Award® and Emmy® Award nominee BEAU WILLIMON (“House of Cards”) and directed by Tony Award® winner PAM MacKINNON (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?).
Set in Washington, D.C., where powerful friends are the only kind worth having, the story follows 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 the stakes couldn’t be higher.
THE PARISIAN WOMAN begins performances November 9 at Hudson Theatre, and also stars JOSH LUCAS (Sweet Home Alabama), MARTON CSOKAS (The Lord of the Rings), Tony Award® nominee PHILLIPA SOO (Hamilton) and Tony Award® winner BLAIR BROWN.”
The rest of the production’s creative team includes scenic design by Derek McLane, costumes by Jane Greenwood, lighting by Peter Kaczorowski, and production design by Darrel Maloney. Sound design and original composition are by Broken Chord.
In an interview with the New York Times, Thurman says of her first Broadway role that, “Of course it’s exposing, but no exposure, no challenge. You can’t test yourself in safety.”
The Parisian Woman plays for a strictly limited engagement from now until March 11. Tickets are available at the box office, by phone, or from thehudsonbroadway.com.
