Joy Franz will star as Mrs. Warren in BOO-Arts Productions’ revival of George Bernard Shaw’s Mrs. Warren’s Profession, to play Manhattan Theare Source, April 1-18, with an opening night set for April 2. Kathleen O’Neill will direct.

The play concerns the title character, who owns a string of highly successful brothels, and her daughter, Vivie, a modern young woman, but not so modern that she can ignore the source of her mother’s wealth.

The production will also feature David Palmer Brown, Ashton Crosby, James Dutton, Joseph Franchini, and Carrie Kozolowski. David Withrow will design the costumes.

Franz appeared in the original Broadway productions of Pippin, Musical Chairs, Open Admissions and Into The Woods, and Broadway revivals of Guys & Dolls and Into The Woods. She is currently appearing Off-Broadway in Avow.
