âThe fight for equal rights has always been a hot topic for Bernard Shaw. Mrs Warren’s profession (1895) was considered so inflammatory at the time that it was banned for years in Britain and, when it finally made its debut here in New York City, the entire cast was shut down when of the opening night. It was not the intrigue of prostitution that offended officials, but the idea that a woman would struggle to create a successful life for herself despite the constraints imposed by law and society, and would thrive without apologies, âsaid GTG’s artistic director. Stall in a previous statement.
The production also features set design by Brian Prather, costumes by Asa Benally, lighting by Jamie Roderick and sound by Frederick Kennedy. April Kline is the production manager.
