Mary Bridget Davies to Star in Virginia Woolf's A ROOM OF ONE'S OWN at Joe's Pub in October

A Room of One's Own at Joe's Pub is a unique version of this classic text as a play with original blues and rock music. 

Tony Award nominee Mary Bridget Davies (A Night with Janis Joplin) will star in Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own on Saturday, October 1, 2022, at 7:00pm at Joe's Pub (425 Lafayette St) channeling her powerful voice and presence in the play with original music. Tickets are $30 and available at tinyurl.com/aroomjoespub.

A Room of One's Own is both a landmark in feminist thought and a rhetorical masterpiece, which started life as Virginia Woolf's lectures to the literary societies of Newnham and Girton Colleges, Cambridge, in October 1928. It was then published by the Hogarth Press in 1929 in a revised and expanded edition that has never been out of print. Addressed to audiences of female students, this became an unforgettable and passionate assertion of women's empowerment by one of the great writers of the 20th century.

With the permission of The Estate of Virginia Woolf, producers Armand & Paiva LLC (Natasha, Pierre, and The Great Comet of 1812, Merrily We Roll Along, The Queen's Six) and Bev Ragovoy (Come From Away, A Night With Janis Joplin, Shout Sister Shout) present a unique version of this classic text as a play with original blues and rock music.

Kirsten Z. Cairns directs the concert reading. She is Artistic Director and Founder of Enigma Chamber Opera, and former Director of Opera Studies at the Boston Conservatory, where she staged many productions including Benjamin Britten's The Turn Of The Screw and Curlew River, which was hailed in the Boston Globe as 'a transcendent experience.'

The songwriting team includes TJ Armand, a full-scholarship recipient from Berklee College of Music and a protegeì of the late Atlantic Records VP Arif Mardin (Bette Midler, Chaka Khan, Bee Gees), who doubles as Davies' music producer and manager. Mark Berman ("Sex and The City," "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," Bullets Over Broadway) co-wrote the songs and serves as the show's pianist. Guitar virtuoso Alex Prezzano (A Night With Janis Joplin) will also join Berman and Davies on stage.
