Sleepy times, right? No drama emanating from our nation’s capital. Barely enough sensation to fill a single page of a broadsheet. Nary a shocking revelation to warm the cockles of a cynic’s heart.
Well, pine no more, scandalmongers. Into this yawning void comes “The Parisian Woman,” a drama by Beau Willimon at the Hudson Theatre that’s a steaming kettle of inside-the-Beltway intrigue. Ambition and deception, sex, betrayal and blackmail: It’s all here, wrapped up in a stylish package centering on the manipulations of the title character, a chic Washington housewife played by Uma Thurman, in her Broadway debut.
