BroadwayWorld has an inside look at the production below.
Miss Julie by August Strindberg will be directed by Julia Traber. The cast features Jennifer Dean as Miss Julie, David Matranga as Jean and Michelle Harper as Christine.
Considered by many to be Strindberg's seminal work, Miss Julie follows an evening in the life of Miss Julie, a young aristocratic woman, as she mingles with the servants on her father's estate. An elaborate game of cat and mouse follows as she torments and toys with her handsome footman, Jean. Strindberg masterfully shifts power back and forth between the sexes and the classes as Jean and Miss Julie tussle for the upper hand in love and power. Strindberg's words are simultaneously able to paint the elation of romance and the darkest aspects of human nature within the same interactions. The evening reaches a startling climax, the ramifications of which speak directly to the very topical notion of class warfare, and what that term truly means.
