Kathleen O'Neill directs the three-week engagement that began performances April 1 and will run through April 18. Franz (Avow, Pippin, Into the Woods) stars in the title role, alongside David Palmer Brown, Ashton Crosby, James Dutton, Joseph Franchini and Caralyn Kozolowski.

Mrs. Warren's Profession has lighting design by Dan Gallagher and costume design by David Withrow.

According to production notes, "Mrs. Warren is the proprietress of a string of highly successful brothels. Her daughter, Vivie, is a modern young woman, but not so modern that she can ignore the source of her mother's wealth. The clash of these two strong-willed and culturally constrained Victorian women is the spark that ignites the ironic wit of one of George Bernard Shaw's greatest plays."

For tickets, priced $18, phone (212) 501-4751 or visit Theatresource.

Manhattan Theatre Source is located at 177 MacDougal Street in Manhattan.
