Written in 1935, the madcap comedy is described as such: "The richest woman in the world (Kate Mulgrew) has everything, or thinks she does. But after an encounter with a mysterious Egyptian doctor (Colman Domingo), The Millionairess embarks on a life-changing journey through lawyer's offices, sweatshops, and out-of-the-way hotels, finally confronting herself in surprising ways."
Past participants in the acclaimed Project Shaw series include Blair Brown, Mark Kudisch, Kerry Butler, Tyne Daly, Jonathan Hadary, Daniel Jenkins, Rebecca Luker, Michael Cerveris, Karen Ziemba, Michele Pawk, Bruce Vilanch, Jack Gilpin and George S. Irving.
