Manhattan Theatre Club has announced a Broadway revival of Saint Joan by Nobel Prize and Oscar winner George Bernard Shaw with direction by Tony winner Daniel Sullivan. Heading the cast as the famous heroine will be Condola Rashad, fresh off her Tony-nominated performance in A Doll’s House, Part 2.
Saint Joan is set to begin previews at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre April 3, 2018, ahead of an April 25 opening. The show will complete MTC’s 2017–2018 season lineup.
Additional casting and a creative team for Saint Joan will be announced at a later date.
Set in 15th century France, Saint Joan recounts the story of Joan of Arc, a peasant girl who claimed to hear the voices of saints directing her to help the Dauphin of France drive the English out of the country. While she was successful in battle, she was ultimately betrayed and tried for heresy.
Shaw’s 1923 play was last seen on Broadway in 1993 starring Maryann Plunkett as Joan. The production was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Revival.
