Shirley Bradshaw used to be Shirley Valentine – a vibrant, brave woman. After years of marriage, she now often finds herself alone, talking to the wall of her kitchen and wondering what happened to the woman she once was. When a friend offerings her the opportunity to travel to Greece for a holiday, Shirley’s world is turned upside down and she embarks on a journey back to herself.
This powerhouse of a one-woman show has been described by reviewers as “joyful”, “thrilling”, and “cheer raising.” NST’s production is directed by Bill Raiten and stage managed by Randall Simons. Johannah Blackman (The Rainmaker, Sabrina Fair, Carousel) is Shirley Valentine. The set, complete with a functioning kitchen(!), is designed and constructed by Peter Stark and Frank John. Costumes, hair and makeup are by Elena Bourakovsky.
