Gloria: A Life (Daryl Roth Theater)
Tony Award-winning producer Daryl Roth (Kinky Boots, The Normal Heart, Indecent), is pleased to announce that Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Christine Lahti will star as Gloria Steinem in the world premiere of Gloria: A Life, a new play about Ms. Steinem as a symbol of past, present and future change. The play, written by Tony Award-nominee Emily Mann (Having Our Say), is directed by the visionary Tony Award-winning Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin).
Gloria: A Life will begin previews Tuesday, October 2, 2018, and open Thursday, October 18, 2018 at the Daryl Roth Theatre on Union Square (101 East 15th Street at Park Avenue South). The production proudly features an all-female creative and producing team.
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.
