About this show

S.N. Behrman's sparkling comedy Biography took Broadway by storm in 1932 becoming the (then) longest running show on the Great White Way. Dazzling Marion Froude, good-hearted and charming, could boast - but she wouldn't - the widest circle of friends in Manhattan. Now they're at war. Marion's newest beau, a fiery young activist, has asked her to write a tell-all memoir about her free-spirited life as an artist to the rich and famous, and her romantic conquests among them. But when rumors of the memoir reach an old flame - now running for the U.S. Senate - he blusters back into Marion's life, vowing to use all his influence to crush her book. Marion, determined to steer a middle course in an age of extremists, just wishes everyone would calm down. Behrman's lively portrayal offers us a New York City that was - and is - a maddening, marvelous clash of cultures, cliques, ideologies, and ethics. The Sunday evening performance on April 22, 2007 is scheduled for 8:00 PM, not the usual time of 7:00 PM.
