Theater: American Airlines / 227 West 42nd Street, New York, NY, 10036

Synopsis: 

Tony Award winner Cherry Jones returns to Broadway in George Bernard Shaw’s scorching tour de force! Mrs. Warren’s Profession tells the story of Kitty Warren, a mother who makes a terrible sacrifice for her daughter Vivie’s independence. The clash of these two strong-willed but culturally constrained women is the spark that ignites the ironic wit of one of Shaw’s greatest plays.

    BEN BRANTLEY

    October 4, 2010: The delightful surprise of the generally less-than-delightful “Mrs. Warren’s Profession,” which opened on Sunday night at the American Airlines Theater, is that Cherry Jones, in the title role, does not nearly glow. She glitters.

    Doesn't actually work

    Elisabeth Vincentelli

    October 3, 2010: The last time Cherry Jones teamed with director Doug Hughes on Broadway was for "Doubt," in 2005. The result was Tonys for both, boffo box office, a national tour and a movie (starring Meryl Streep, natch). Let's just say lightning didn't strike twice.

  • THE FASTER TIMES REVIEW OF Mrs. Warren’s Profession

    October 4, 2010: Nobody utters the word “prostitution” or even “madam” in “Mrs. Warren’s Profession,” a play by George Bernard Shaw that was nevertheless scandalous enough for the police to shut it down after only one performance when it debuted on Broadway in 1905.

  • ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY REVIEW OF Mrs. Warren’s Profession

    October 4, 2010: George Bernard Shaw's play Mrs. Warren's Profession was first staged in New York City in 1905, well before women's liberation. So when it debuted, a show focused on the proprietress of a chain of high-class whorehouses must have really rattled the cages of prudish people.

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW OF Mrs. Warren’s Profession

    October 4, 2010: George Bernard Shaw's "Mrs. Warren's Profession" hasn't had a happy life. An early work by the playwright, it was banned virtually as soon as it was written and has never been considered among his best. Even Shaw labeled it one of his "plays unpleasant."

  • THEATERMANIA REVIEW OF Mrs. Warren’s Profession

    October 4, 2010: When Cherry Jones makes her entrance as Kitty Warren in George Bernard Shaw's Mrs. Warren's Profession, now at the Roundabout's American Airlines Theatre, she's wearing a red traveling suit and elaborate wide-brimmed chapeau that Catherine Zuber designed according to George Bernard Shaw's request for "a brilliant hat and a gay blouse."
