"Gloria: A Life" Headlines Emily Mann's Last Season at the McCarter

Emily Mann is a triple threat: an award-winning playwright known for her “theater of testimony,” a sought-after director, and the artistic director of one of America’s preeminent regional theaters, the McCarter Theatre Center in Princeton, New Jersey. She is stepping down as artistic director after the 2019-2020 season, her 30th at the McCarter.

In this special edition of the Jersey Arts Podcast, producer Susan Wallner talks with Mann about her career, her future projects, and her final season, which begins with her play “Gloria: A Life” starring Mary McDonnell (“Dances with Wolves,” “Battlestar Galactica”). Mann and McDonnell have worked together since 1980, when both won Obies for Mann’s play “Execution of Justice” on Broadway. “Gloria: A Life” features the story of the iconic feminist Gloria Steinem, and first ran last season at the Daryl Roth Theatre in New York. McCarter’s new production, directed by Diane Paulus, runs September 6 - October 6, 2019.
