Jones Featured in Entertainment Weekly Must List

Cherry Jones, who recently won her second Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play for her performance in Doubt, is featured in Entertainment Weekly's annual Must List; the issue hits newstands today.

In addition to the Tony, Jones received a Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Lortel and Obie Awards for her performance as Sister Aloysius in the hit drama, which continues to break house records at the Walter Kerr Theatre (219 W. 48th St). She had been Tony-nominated before for A Moon for the Misbegotten in 2000 and Our Country's Good in 1991. Her other Broadway credits include Imaginary Friends, Major Barbara, The Night of the Iguana, The Heiress, 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.

Doubt is written by John Patrick Shanley, and directed by Doug Hughes. The production is the most honored play of the season, having received the 2005 Tony Award for Best Play, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Drama Critics Circle Award for the Best Play of the 2004-2005 Season, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Play, the Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Play, the Obie Award for writing, and the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Play.

In addition to Jones, Doubt stars Brían F. O'Byrne as Father Flynn, with Heather Goldenhersh as Sister James and Adriane Lenox as Mrs. Muller. The other three cast members have also earned numerous awards and accolades: Brían F. O'Byrne received Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards as Best Actor in a Play; Heather Goldenhersh was honored with a Theatre World Award for her Broadway debut; and Adriane Lenox is the winner of the Tony, Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel Awards for Best Featured Actress in a Play. Also, Hughes received Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Lortel Awards for his direction of Doubt, and an Obie Award for sustained excellence.

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?

Doubt's set design is by John Lee Beatty, with costume design by Catherine Zuber, lighting design by Pat Collins, and original music and sound design by David Van Tieghem. The play 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.
