Saint Joan - 2018 - Broadway

Four-time Tony Award nominee Condola Rashad (A Doll's House, Part 2) stars as one of history's greatest heroines in a major new production of Bernard Shaw's epic work directed by Daniel Sullivan (Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes).

Set in 15th century France, Saint Joan follows a country girl whose mysterious visions propel her into elite circles. When the nation's rulers become threatened by her popularity and influence, they unite to bring her down and she finds herself on trial for her life. This timeless and powerful play dramatizes the limits of an individual in a society dominated by overwhelming political and religious forces.

Featured Reviews For Saint Joan


‘Saint Joan’ review: Condola Rashad is a force in engrossing drama - amNY
On the heels of Lincoln Center Theater's acclaimed revival of "My Fair Lady" (which is based on Shaw's 1913 comedy of manners "Pygmalion"), Manhattan Theatre Club is presenting a straightforward, generally effective production of his 1923 tragedy "Saint Joan" with three-time Tony nominee Condola Rashad ("A Doll's House, Part 2," the Showtime series "Billions") as Joan of Arc.

Theater Review: 'Saint Joan' - NY1
On the surface, George Bernard Shaw's "Saint Joan" is a great choice to produce now. In a sense, Joan of Arc was the ultimate feminist in an ultra-patriarchal world, and she certainly paid the price for her convictions. But while the Manhattan Theatre Club's timely selection of this great play raises high expectations, the production falls a bit short.

The title character of George Bernard Shaw's Saint Joan was burned at the stake nearly 500 years before the play premiered at Broadway's Garrick Theatre in December of 1923, but for many viewers there may have been a sense of topicality to the proceedings.

'I feel so liberated,' said Condola Rashad following her opening night bow in Saint Joan. 'Stepping into this particular character's shoes has really done something for me as a person, not just as an actor.'
