Woman seeking... a theatre company opens their 11th Season with the production, Mary the Third directed by Katrin Hilbe. Mary the Third, the company's 19th production, is being produced in New York for the first time since it's 1923 premiere at the 39th Street theatre - produced by Shubert and starring George Howard and Louise Huff. It ran for 152 performances.
In the dramedy Mary the Third, three generations of "Mary's" ponder the question--Is there only one love in a lifetime or is "free love" the solution? Rachel Crothers' classic wit and shrewd observations show us that every generation will struggle anew to answer the pesky relationship riddle! Produced in 1923, it is interesting to note how relevant the question remains, and how, 80 years later, we still want to avoid the mistakes of our elders, but continue to let our desires trump our most brilliant thinking!
