Photo Flash: Donna Murphy & More Opening Night TERESA'S ECSTASY at Cherry Lane Theatre
Actress and playwright Begonya Plaza, along with fellow cast members Shawn Elliott and Linda Larkin were joined by Donna Murphy, Willem Dafoe, and friends and family at the opening night of TERESA'S ECSTASY. After receiving a standing ovation at the Cherry Lane Theatre, they went to Soccarat Paella Bar on Mulberry Street for an after-party that included Spanish wines and a delicious tapas menu.
In TERESA'S ECSTASY, Carlotta stops off in Barcelona to serve her husband Andres with divorce papers before going to Avila, where she is researching an article on St. Teresa, a 16th Century nun. Over a sumptuous lunch of wine and gazpacho, Andres fights to rekindle their relationship. But Carlotta is on a quest for the divine, and in the process of discovering the mystical Teresa's Ecstasy, she discovers herself. TERESA’S ECSTASY is a sexually charged look at politics, religion and ultimately love.
