Cherry Jones Extends Contract in Doubt Tour

News   Cherry Jones Extends Contract in Doubt Tour
 
More people will get to see Cherry Jones' Tony Award-winning performance in Doubt, the producers of the national tour announced.

Jones has extended her contract into the spring and will continue as Sister Aloysius in the touring production of John Patrick Shanley's Tony Award-winning and Pulitzer Prize-honored drama.

Jones will play the role through May 20, including stops in Charlotte, Tampa, Baltimore and Philadelphia. The tour launched Sept. 22, 2006.

Jones' castmates are Chris McGarry (Father Flynn), Lisa Joyce (Sister James) and Caroline Stefanie Clay (Mrs. Muller).

"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," according to production notes. "Should she voice concerns about one of her male colleagues…even if she's not entirely certain of the truth?"

Jones originated the role of Sister Aloysius at Manhattan Theatre Club Off-Broadway, and the production moved to Broadway. Along with the Tony Award, the role earned her a Drama Desk Award, the Outer Critics Circle Award, the Lucille Lortel Award, and an Obie. Her Broadway credits include The Heiress, Imaginary Friends, Major Barbara, A Moon for the Misbegotten, Our Country's Good, Angels in America and most recently Faith Healer. Doubt is directed by Tony Award-winner Doug Hughes, and produced by Carole Shorenstein Hays, MTC Productions Inc. (Lynne Meadow, artistic director; Barry Grove, executive producer), Roger Berlind and Scott Rudin.
