The New York premiere of Sandra Tsing Loh‘s Madwomen of the West begins previews November 11 prior to an official opening December 4 Off-Broadway at the Actors Temple
Theatre.

The cast features Caroline Aaron (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Social Security), Marilu Henner (Taxi, Chicago), Melanie Mayron (Thirtysomething, Godspell), and Brooke Adams (Lend Me a Tenor, The Heidi Chronicles); the latter previously replaced JoBeth Williams (The Big Chill, Body Awareness).

Thomas Caruso
directs Madwomen of the West, which is currently scheduled to continue through December 31. Christopher Burney is the creative consultant.

The play is set in Jules' Brentwood mansion, where Marilyn, who is
sugar-cleansing, is throwing a surprise birthday brunch for Claudia, who
hates birthdays. Their long-estranged celebrity friend Zoey crashes the
party, fresh from her TED Talks.

The production also has set design by Christian Fleming,
lighting design by Pamela Kupper, costume design by Sharon
Feldstein and Erin Hirsh, and sound design by Max Silverman with
Michael Palmer as the production stage manager.

Loh is the author of The Madwoman in the Volvo: My Year of Raging Hormones, which was selected as one of the New York Times 100 Most Notable Books. Her previous book, Mother on Fire,
was inspired by her hit solo show about Los Angeles public education. Her other solo shows include Aliens in America and Bad Sex With Bud Kemp (both Off-Broadway at Second Stage Theatre), Sugar Plum Fairy (Geffen Playhouse, Seattle Rep, East West Players), and I Worry (Kennedy Center, Actor's Theatre of Louisville).

DOS Media Lab produces with Deco Rose Productions.
