The D.C.-set play by Beau Willimon also features Phillipa Soo and Josh Lucas.
The Broadway premiere of The Parisian Woman, which marks the Broadway debuts of Uma Thurman and playwright Beau Willimon, officially opens November 30 at the Hudson Theatre. Performances began November 9.
Inspired by Henri Becque's 1885 French farce La Parisienne, The Parisian Woman follows a power couple (Thurman and Lucas) as they angle to secure a judicial post—blurring the lines between ambition and morality.
The piece was first commissioned and developed by the Flea Theater before being produced at South Coast Repertory in 2013. Willimon has heavily revised the piece since its California debut to reflect the political climate.
