The play, directed by Pam MacKinnon, also features Josh Lucas, Tony winner Blair Brown, Marton Csokas, and Hamilton Tony nominee Phillipa Soo.

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.

The production features sets by Derek McLane, costumes by Jane Greenwood, lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski, projection design by Darrel Maloney, and sound design by Broken Chord.

The Broadway engagement of The Parisian Woman is produced by Marc Routh, Richard Frankel, Tom Viertel, Steven Baruch, and Steve Traxler.

Tune in to Playbill's coverage of the opening-night celebration, beginning at approximately 9 PM ET, on Facebook Live.
