Seattle, WA – November 6, 2007 – Due to popular demand, performances for Clare Boothe Luce’s The Women, directed by Warner Shook, are now on sale through December 16. To date, more than 11,000 single tickets have been sold—more than double than any previous mainstage production at ACT.

“We’re thrilled at the tremendous response for The Women,” said ACT Artistic Director Kurt Beattie . “It’s turning into one of our most successful productions ever, and that’s very gratifying. It took us three years to bring this show to the stage – physically it’s one of the most ambitious projects we’ve ever taken on – and for us it’s a celebration not only of the 16 wonderful actresses on stage, but also of the extraordinary work of our set, costume, and properties shops, and of course the unmatchably stylish vision of our director Warner Shook. It’s truly wonderful to share all that with the audience and have them embrace it with such enthusiasm and delight.”
