Cherry Jones to make Broadway return in Shaw play

- Associated Press - Monday, July 19, 2010

NEW YORK (AP) - Tony-winning actress Cherry Jones returns to Broadway in a revival of George Bernard Shaw's "Mrs. Warren's Profession."

The controversial 19th-century family drama examines the tension between a mother and daughter after a family secret is revealed. It is regarded as one of Shaw's greatest plays.

Jones plays Kitty Warren, a woman forced to make terrible sacrifices for her family. Golden-Globe winner Sally Hawkins makes her Broadway debut as Kitty's daughter, Vivie.

Hawkins won a Golden Globe for her performance in the British film "Happy-Go-Lucky."

Jones won the Tony for her portrayal of Sister Aloysius in "Doubt." She also played President Taylor on the hit series, "24," for which she won an Emmy.

The Roundabout Theater Company production begins previews Sept. 3, with opening night set for Oct. 3.
