LOLA IS A FADED BEAUTY QUEEN trapped in a lonely marriage to Doc, a recovering alcoholic on the brink of relapse.

Epatha Merkerson (“Law and Order,” The Piano Lesson) head an exceptional cast in this new production of William Inge’s true American classic, an absorbing tale of lost hopes and unfulfilled promise, told with unflinching honesty and heartbreaking power.

  THE BROADWAY DEBUT of a Caryl Churchill masterpiece. Set at the Top Girls Employment Agency in London in the early 1980s, this groundbreaking, theatrical play tells the story of Marlene, an ambitious career woman who has just been appointed head of the firm. But as she celebrates her achievements, can we applaud her values? This bold and ingenious work from the singularly talented author of Far Away and Cloud Nine offers one of the theatre’s most honest portraits of what it means to be a woman in the modern world. Directed by James Macdonald, who staged the New York premiere of Ms. Churchill’s A Number, the cast will feature Mary Catherine Garrison, Jennifer Ikeda, Elizabeth Marvel, Martha Plimpton, and Marisa Tomei.
