Now casting equity actors for the Broadway political drama, The Parisian Woman. The Parisian Woman is set in Washington, D.C., where powerful friends are the only kind worth having, especially after the 2016 election. At the center is Chloe, a socialite armed with charm and wit, coming to terms with politics, her past, her marriage and an uncertain future. Dark humor and drama collide at this pivotal moment in Chloe’s life, and in our nation’s, when the truth isn’t obvious and stakes couldn’t be higher. Oscar nominee Uma Thurman will make her starring Broadway debut.
