Women's Project Theater's BETHANY Concludes 2/17
Women's Project Theater's widely-acclaimed and packed-house production of Laura Marks's world premiere dark comedy Bethany, directed by Gaye Taylor Upchurch, will close as scheduled Sunday, February 17, after the 2:30pm matinee to make way for Tina Benko in the North American Premiere of Jackie by Nobel Prize winner and author of The Piano Teacher, Elfriede Jelinek, directed by Tea Alagic.
Jackie previews Sunday, February 24, at 2:30pm for an opening Tuesday, March 5, at 7:30pm at Women's Project Theater's new home, New York City Center Stage II, 131 West 55th Street. Critics are raving about and audiences are clamoring to see America Ferrera, Emily Ackerman, Kristin Griffith, Ken Marks, Tobias Segal and Myra Lucretia Taylor in Bethany.
Jackie, an intensely theatrical dissection of Jackie Kennedy Onassis and the myths surrounding her well-coiffed veneer, is a disturbing exploration of submission, power, and the hypocrisy of everyday life. WARNING: This is not your grandmother's Jackie.
