GLORIA: A LIFE
GLORIA: A Life, a new play about Gloria Steinem, completed its critically acclaimed limited engagement on March 31, 2019 at the Daryl Roth Theatre on Union Square (101 East 15th Street at Park Avenue South). GLORIA: A Life is written by Tony Award-nominee Emily Mann (Having Our Say), and directed by Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin).
GLORIA: A Life will open the 2019-2020 season at the McCarter Theatre Center in Princeton, N.J., playing from September 6-October 6, 2019.
GLORIA: A Life is a richly detailed tapestry about one of the most inspiring and remarkable women of our time. Five decades after Gloria Steinem began raising her voice for equality and championing those of others, her vision is as urgent as ever. Gloria’s life’s work and philosophy on the necessity of conversation as a catalyst for change offer us all a path forward in a way that only live theater can. The first act is her story; the second is our own.
Act One focuses on Ms. Steinem’s personal life and activism, and Act Two is a Talking Circle in which the audience will be invited to carry the themes of the play into a conversation of their own. This exciting and unique production offers a new form of communicating through theatre.
