Kathleen O'Neill will direct the three-week run, which begins April 1 and runs through April 18 at the Manhattan Theatre Source. Opening night is April 2. Franz (Pippin, Into the Woods) stars in the title role, alongside David Palmer Brown, Ashton Crosby, James Dutton, Joseph Franchini and Carrie Kozolowski.

Costume design is by David Withrow.

According to press 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.
