The ailing Sally Hawkins is back on Broadway in her leading role of Vivie Warren in “Mrs. Warren’s Profession.” This is according to the show’s press agents Boneau/Bryan-Brown. “Mrs. Warren’s Profession” which I enjoyed immensely is ending it limited run at the American Airlines Theater at the end of November.
It’s the best show I’ve seen this season on Broadway. Cherry Jones is just grand as Mrs. Warren, and if you want to see Sally Hawkins live, on stage, you’ll enjoy this marvelous production of George Bernard Shaw’s scandalous-for-its time play about a young, well-educated woman(Sally) who has never met her mother, (Cherry) Mrs. Warren, of the title and has no idea about what kind of life she has led. She’s been brought up in British boarding schools her whole life. While Mrs. Warren has lived mostly on the Continent.
When her daughter finds out just what it is her mother does…well, that’s the whole turning point of the play. More on this later.
