On Thursday, March 22, 2018, The Manhattan Theatre Club, in association with Walk Tall Girl Productions, held an exclusive event with three-time Tony nominee Condola Rashad and the cast of the upcoming Broadway revival of Bernard Shaw's SAINT JOAN. Dr. Indira Etwaroo, Executive Director of RestorationART and The Billie Holiday Theatre, moderated this evening of conversation and connection.
Three-time Tony Award nominee Condola Rashad (A Doll’s House, Part 2) stars as one of history’s greatest heroines in a major new production of Bernard Shaw‘s epic work directed by Daniel Sullivan (Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes). Set in 15th century France, Saint Joan follows a country girl whose mysterious visions propel her into elite circles. When the nation’s rulers become threatened by her popularity and influence, they unite to bring her down and she finds herself on trial for her life. This timeless and powerful play dramatizes the limits of an individual in a society dominated by overwhelming political and religious forces.
The cast includes Condola Rashad, Walter Bobbie, Adam Chanler-Berat, Jack Davenport, John Glover, Patrick Page, Daniel Sunjata, Maurice Jones, Russell G. Jones, Max Gordon Moore, Matthew Saldivar, Robert Stanton, Lou Sumrall, Tony Carlin, Ben Horner, Mandi Masden, Howard W. Overshown, Michael Rudko, and RJ Vaillancourt
