|Mrs Warren's Profession
| Open: 04/01/09 Close: 04/18/09
BOO-Arts Productions is pleased to announce their production of George Bernard Shaw’s MRS. WARREN’S PROFESSION, directed by Kathleen O’Neill. MRS. WARREN’S PROFESSION will play a three-week limited engagement at Manhattan Theatre Source (177 MacDougal Street, New York, NY 10011). Performances begin Wednesday, April 1st and continue through Saturday, April 18th. Opening Night is Thursday, April 2nd (7 p.m.).
Mrs. Warren is the proprietress of a string of highly successful brothels. Her daughter, Vivie, is a modern young woman, but not so modern that she can ignore the source of her mother's wealth. The clash of these two strong-willed and culturally constrained Victorian women is the spark that ignites the ironic wit of one of George Bernard Shaw's greatest plays. Initially banned after its 1893 publication for its startling frankness, Mrs. Warren's Profession, a withering critique of male domination, sexual hypocrisy, and societal convention, remains a provocative and powerful work of progressive theater.
The production stars Joy Franz (Original Broadway productions of Pippin, Musical Chairs, Open Admissions and Into The Woods; Broadway revivals of Guys & Dolls and Into The Woods), David Palmer Brown*, Ashton Crosby, James Dutton, Joseph Franchini* and Carrie Kozolowski.
Costume design is by David Withrow (IT Award recipient for Bug Boy Blues).
MRS. WARREN’S PROFESSION plays the following regular schedule through Saturday, April 18th:
Wednesdays at 7 p.m.
Thursdays at 7 p.m.
Fridays at 8 p.m.
Saturdays at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $18 and are now available online at www.TheatreSource.org or by calling 212-501-4751. Tickets may also be purchased in-person at the Manhattan Theatre Source, 177 MacDougal Street.

Two men concoct a list of the attributes of the ideal woman - the "top ten" best qualities in a mate.
