Cherry Jones Featured on Joan Hamburg Show, Sept. 30

Two time Tony Award-winner Cherry Jones, currently starring in Doubt at the Walter Kerr Theatre (219 West 48th Street), will be featured on 710 WOR-AM's "The Joan Hamburg Show" on Friday, September 30th, starting at 10 AM.

Doubt won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, as well as the 2005 Tony Award for Best Play. Jones received a Tony for Best Actress in a Play, as did Adriane Lenox for Best Featured Actress in a Play; director Doug Hughes was also honored with an award. Doubt was also nominated for four other Tonys, and also received the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play of the Year, the Drama League Award for Distinguished Play, and four Outer Critics Circle Awards, including Best Play and four Lucille Lortel Awards, including Best Play.

Set against the backdrop of a Bronx Catholic school in 1964, Doubt is the story of a strong-minded woman faced with a difficult decision. Should she voice concerns about one of her male colleagues…even if she's not entirely certain of the truth?

In addition to the Tony, Jones received a Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Lortel and Obie Awards for her performance in Doubt. She had been Tony-nominated before for A Moon for the Misbegotten in 2000 and Our Country's Good in 1991; she won for The Heiress. Her other Broadway credits include Imaginary Friends, Major Barbara, The Night of the Iguana, Angels in America, Macbeth and Stepping Out. A respected film actress, Jones has appeared in The Village, Signs, The Perfect Storm, Erin Brockovich and The Cradle Will Rock, among others.

In addition to Jones, the show stars Brian F. O'Byrne as the suspicious Father Flynn, Adriane Lenox as Mrs. Muller and Heather Goldenhersh as Sister James.

Doubt features set design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by Catherine Zuber, lighting design by Pat Collins, and original music and sound design by David Van Tieghem.  Doubt is produced by Carole Shorenstein Hays, MTC Productions Inc. (Lynne Meadow, Artistic Director; Barry Grove, Executive Producer), Roger Berlind and Scott Rudin.

The performance schedule is Tuesday through Saturday at 8:00 PM, with matinees on Wednesday and Saturday at 2:00 PM, and Sunday at 3:00 PM.

Tickets are available by calling at 212: 239-6200 or at the Walter Kerr Theatre box office (219 West 48th Street).
