Taking its cues from the book by Jane Juska, in addition to the movie “Autumn Tale” by Eric Rohmer, “A Round-Heeled Woman” turned many heads on its arrival to Riverside Studios in London. As such it proved to be an acclaimed production and it now heads to the West End where London theatre audiences will have another opportunity to witness the likes of Sharon Gless on the stage, as she portrays a woman playing the dating game in California. The show follows “Cool Hand Luke” at the Aldwych Theatre from the end of November and is set to continue until January 2012.
Jane Juska penned “A Round-Heeled Woman” following her experiences of dating in California. At the beginning of the play we meet the divorcee at the last straw following three decades of living the single life and it is at this point that she decides to take out an ad in the New York Review of Books. The ad is a big success and the result is sixty-three replies and an abundance of dates for her to go on. These dates formed the basis of her book and as a result of that and this stage show those around the world can take in the ups and downs of her experiences.
Sharon Gless is an American actress whose stage work includes productions on both sides of the Atlantic and is perhaps best known for her work in television shows such as “Cagney and Lacey” and, more recently, “Nip/Tuck”. Stateside she has appeared in the likes of “Cahoots” at Chicago’s Victory Gardens Theatre and “The Vagina Monologues” at New York’s Madison Square Garden, whilst her London theatre roles include “Chapter 2” at the Gielgud Theatre and “Misery” at the Criterion Theatre.
She stars alongside Jane Bertish, Beth Cordingly, Barry McCarthy, Neil McCaul and Michael Thomson, who also have various credits to their name and they are sure to bring a lot to their roles when they make the transfer alongside Gless to the West End.
They will all appear in “A Round-Heeled Woman” at the Aldwych Theatre, which is also announced as the upcoming home of “Top Hat”, from Wednesday 30th November 2011 (previews from Thursday 24th November 2011) to Saturday 14th January 2012.
