Producers of the Broadway premiere of The Testament of Mary, starring Olivier Award winner and Tony nominee Fiona Shaw as the mother of Jesus, have announced a limited student rush ticket policy for the new solo drama by Colm Tóibín.
A limited number of $35 rush tickets, subject to availability, will be sold at the box office for day-of performances. Individuals may purchase up to two tickets with a valid student ID. Cash and credit cards will be accepted.
Shaw reunites with director Deborah Warner for the one-woman work that is playing a limited 12-week engagement through June 16. Previews began March 26. The Testament of Mary will officially open April 22.
As previously reported by Playbill.com, the first preview of the controversial play on March 26 was met with protests from a Catholic group. Read more about it here.
According to producers, "In The Testament of Mary the mother of Jesus tells her story of her son’s Crucifixion."
The production marks the first collaboration between Shaw and Warner to premiere in the U.S. The two have earned acclaim for their work on Medea, Happy Days, Mother Courage, Hedda Galber, The Good Person of Sichuan and The Waste Land. Tóibín's works include "The Blackwater Lightship," "The Master," "The South, Homage to Barcelona," "The Heather Blazing," "The Story of the Night" and "Brooklyn."
