In Tennessee Williams’s The Night of the Iguana, a defrocked clergyman encounters inside disturbances amid outside disturbances during one stormy night at the Costa Verde Hotel in Acapulco as the world prepares for World War II. After four women of different ages and backgrounds, along with a 97-year-old poet, engage in the clergyman’s spiritual struggles, their lives leap dramatically forward. And the catalytic, defrocked clergyman makes it through the night.

“La Femme is dedicated to presenting classic plays with extraordinary casts and creative team, and we are thrilled to present The Night of the Iguana, helmed by the incomparable Emily Mann. As much as we will miss performing on an actual stage, our  team has been flexible enough to pivot to present this iconic play online. During these trying times, we are proud to offer this presentation as a benefit for The Actors Fund.” La Femme Executive Director, Jean Lichty

The creative team includes Beowulf Boritt (Set / Background Design), Darron L West (Music and Sound Effects), Amy Stoller (Dramaturg and Language Consultant), Stephanie Klapper (Casting Director), Cheryl Mintz (Production Stage Manager), and LDK Productions/ Lisa Dozier King (General Management).
