Joining the Tony & Olivier Award-winning West End & New York Producing Team - Wessex Grove, Ambassador Theatre Group Productions (ATG) and Bad Robot Live – for the U.S. Premiere of One Woman Show are Broadway Video (“Saturday Night Live”, Mean Girls), Emmy Award winner Kater Gordon (“Mad Men”), Tony Award winners WJP (The Lehman Trilogy), Liz Armstrong/ Fiona Rudin, and Rebecca Gold /Jayne Baron Sherman.

ONE WOMAN SHOW transfers to New York this summer following an extended run at Ambassadors Theatre in London’s West End – ignited by “feverish word-of-mouth and unanimous five-star reviews” (The Independent) – and sold-out global engagements at Soho Theatre (London), Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and the Sydney Opera House. The show was honored with a 2023 Olivier Award nomination for Best Entertainment or Comedy Play, as well as an Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination.

The Off-Broadway production is dedicated to the loving memory of Adam Brace, Kingsman's long-time collaborator and director of the show, who tragically passed away unexpectedly from a brief illness this May. The creative team for the U.S. Premiere are​​ Scenic Designer Chloe Lamford (Theodora, Get Up Stand Up!), Lighting Designer Daniel Carter-Brennan (Age Is A Feeling, Literally Who Cares?!), Sound Designer Max Perryment and Choreographer Joshua Lay. Wagner Johnson Productionsserves as General Manager. One Woman Show was originally produced by Country Mile Productions.

 “I am thrilled to bring this show to New York, the spiritual home of one-woman shows,” said Liz Kingsman. “Perhaps, in some sense, the piece has always existed here. And perhaps, in a very real sense, it hasn’t. I’m not interested in that distinction. I’m interested in storytelling. And I’m interested in spending the summer in New York City.”

“After One Woman Show’s hit West End run, Olivier nomination, and wonderful collection of worldwide five-star reviews, the absolute cherry on top is a run at the Greenwich House Theater and getting to share this show with New York audiences,” said producers Emily Vaughan-Barratt and Benjamin Lowy of Wessex Grove. “Liz is an extraordinary writer and performer, and this show will make audiences ache with laughter; but like all extraordinary pieces of theatre…. it’s important too….”

The regular playing schedule for One Woman Show is: Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 7:00PM; Wednesdays at 6:30PM & 9:15PM; Saturdays at 6:00PM & 9:00PM.
