Uma Thurman, Ready to Be Tested

by ALEXIS SOLOSKI | THE NEW YORK TIMES | NOVEMBER 8, 2017

Uma Thurman knows that there are no retakes in theater, no postproduction fixes, no chances to dub in a line. When she strides onstage for “The Parisian Woman,” a play by Beau Willimon, the “House of Cards” creator, that opens Nov. 30 at the Hudson Theater, no flattering lenses or editing trickery will help her.

“Of course it’s exposing,” she said over dinner recently, “but no exposure, no challenge. You can’t test yourself in safety.”

Uma Thurman to Make Broadway Debut in ‘The Parisian Woman’

by MICHAEL PAULSON | THE NEW YORK TIMES | JULY 12, 2017

Uma Thurman will make her Broadway debut this fall in a political drama by Beau Willimon, the creator of “House of Cards.”

Ms. Thurman will star in “The Parisian Woman,” which, despite its title, is about a woman in Washington who is asking her lover to help her husband get a high-level government position. The play is inspired by a 19th-century French boulevard play, “La Parisienne,” by Henry François Becque.

“It’s contemporary, it’s sharp, it’s witty and it’s a grown-up piece of material,” Ms. Thurman said in a telephone interview. “I think it moves beautifully, and I felt like it was a good part for me.”

Josh Lucas to Star Alongside Uma Thurman in Broadway’s The Parisian Woman

by ANDY LEFKOWITZ | BROADWAY.COM | JULY 18, 2017

Stage and film actor Josh Lucas is slated to co-star opposite Uma Thurman on Broadway in Beau Willimon’s drama The Parisian Woman. Lucas will play Tom, husband to Thurman’s character, Chloe. The previously announced production, directed by Tony winner Pam MacKinnon, will open at a theater to be announced on November 30.

The Parisian Woman is set in Washington, D.C., where powerful friends are the only kind worth having, especially after the 2016 election. At the center is Chloe (Thurman), a socialite armed with charm and wit, coming to terms with politics, her past, her marriage to Tom (Lucas) and an uncertain future.

Uma On Stage: Uma Thurman reflects on her vast career as she prepares for her Broadway debut

by ADRIENNE GAFFNEY | DuJour.com

You notice the voice before anything. Preceding her as she makes her way down the hall, the alluringly husky tone is striking, and causes you to sit up a bit straighter, while also being comfortingly familiar. When the woman herself arrives and sits down next to you, managing an impossibly impeccable all-white outfit on a sweltering day, it’s clear that her voice is part of a presence that’s remarkable in every way: enviable height, a distinct self-assuredness and a regal bearing rounding out the package.

‘House of Cards’ Beau Willimon Responds to Breaking News in The Parisian Woman

by BETH STEVENS | Broadway.com | September 6, 2017

While Beau Willimon was stuck in traffic on his way to Broadway.com, it was easy to keep tabs on his mindset: A quick Twitter check revealed several pointed political jabs. “I was making the best use of my time,” the bright-eyed scribe laughed upon his arrival. Willimon is widely known as the creator of Netflix’s House of Cards, on which he served as showrunner for the first four seasons. He’s a playwright (“Tennessee Williams is my spirit animal”) who wrote the campaign-trail play Farragut North, which became the film The Ides of March. Willimon is now making his way to Broadway with The Parisian Woman, inspired by Henri Becque’s 1885 play La Parisienne. Willimon’s new work received its world premiere at South Coast Rep in 2013. Now he’s revisiting the piece with a sharper lens, thanks to the 2016 presidential election.
