GLORIA: A LIFE
GLORIA: A Life, a new play about Gloria Steinem, has now been extended through 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 is directed by visionary Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin).
GLORIA: A Life brings us 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.
Joining Patricia Kalember as Gloria Steinem, are DeLanna Studi (And So We Walked, August: Osage County), Patrena Murray (Venus, The Death of the Last Black Man), Joanna Glushak (War Paint, A Gentlemen’s Guide to Love and Murder), Liz Wisan (Other Desert Cities, These Paper Bullets!), Francesca Fernandez McKenzie (As You Like It, Othello, Our Lady of 121st Street), Fedna Jacquet (Ain’t No Mo, The Tempest/Henry V) , and Brittany K. Allen (True Right, Minor Character).
