“La Femme is dedicated to presenting classic plays with extraordinary casts and creative team, and we are thrilled to present The Night of the Iguana, helmed by the incomparable Emily Mann.

During these trying times, we are proud to offer this presentation as a benefit for The Actors Fund,” says Executive Director Jean Lichty.

The creative team also includes set and background designer Beowulf Boritt, composer and sound effects designer Darron L West, dramaturg and language consultant Amy Stoller, casting director Stephanie Klapper, and production stage manager Cheryl Mintz, with general management by LDK Productions/Lisa Dozier King.
