Set to make its U.S. premiere, Liz Kingsman's One Woman Show is transferring to Off-Broadway's Greenwich House Theater. Previews will begin June 14 for the 2023 Olivier-nominated show which will open June 20. Its limited engagement is set through August 11.
Written and performed by Kingsman who will be making her New York stage debut, One Woman Show is vaguely described in press notes as a "bold, irreverent, raw, moving, and triumphant celebration of adjectives." Adam Brace (Just For Us, Literally Who Cares?!) will continue as director of the social satire which features lighting design by Daniel Carter-Brennan.
Joining the creative team for the Off-Broadway production will be scenic designer Chloe Lamford, sound designer Max Perryment, and choreographer Joshua Lay.
“I am thrilled to bring this show to New York, the spiritual home of one-woman shows,” said Kingsman. “Perhaps, in some sense, the piece has always existed there. And perhaps, in a very real sense, it hasn’t. I’m not interested in that distinction. I’m interested in storytelling. And I’m interested in spending the summer in New York City.”
Wessex Grove, led by Emily Vaughan-Barratt and Benjamin Lowy, Ambassador Theatre Group Productions, and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Live are serving as producers.Wagner Johnson Productions serves as general manager.
