Powerful and uplifting, Gloria: A Life by Emily Mann with Christine Lahti, is a ‘must see’ play for the moment.
November 4, 2018: Christiane Amanpour, the Chief International Anchor of CNN, was the special guest for the Act II of the “must see” play for the moment, Gloria: A Life by Emily Mann, now playing at the DR2 on East 15th Street in Union Square. Christine Lahti stars as Gloria Steinem in a factual and detailed account of her life directed in the round by Diane Paulus. Steinem’s story just happens to crystalize our political moment today through the lens of one of the most inspiring voices of The Women’s Movement.
Five decades after Gloria Steinem began raising her voice for equality and championing those of others, her vision is as urgent as ever. Gloria’s life’s work and philosophy on the necessity of conversation as a catalyst for change offer a path forward in a way that only live theater can. The first act is her story; the second is our own: Act Two is a Talking Circle in which the audience carried on the themes of the play into conversation started by Christiane Amanpour, the special guest.
Christine Lahti stars as Gloria Steinem, along with Joanna Glushak, Fedna Jacquet, Francesca Fernandez McKenzie, Patrena Murray, DeLanna Studi , and Brittany K. Allen . The creative team features scenic design by Amy Rubin, costume design by Jessica Jahn, lighting design by Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew, sound design by Rob Kaplowitz and Andrea Allmond, projection design by Elaine J. McCarthy.
