Jeannine Kaspar Will Lead MSTRIAL At New World Stages
Jeannine Kaspar will take over the starring role of Karen Lukoff in MsTRIAL at New World Stages beginning January 3, 2020. The role was originally played by Christine Evangelista. Tickets are $49- $89 and can be purchased by visiting Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.
Internationally renowned trial lawyer John Paris plays to win, both in and out of court. For Karen Lukoff, John's young attractive associate, losing has never been an option either. Together, they are a litigation juggernaut. After a major victory, the firm celebrates the win as hard as they fought for it. In the drunken morning hours, left alone, John and Karen collide in a high-octane moment that will cause everyone-including the audience-to question what they know about desire, consent, winning, and losing.
MsTRIAL is written by Dep Kirkland and directed by Rick Andosca and began performances on November 14 preceding its opening on December 4, 2019.
