Kate Mulgrew will star as Maria Callas in the Paper Mill Playhouse's production of Master Class, which opens March 4, playhouse officials announced.
Terrence McNally’s Tony-Award winning play will be directed by Wendy Goldberg and will run at the Millburn theatre March 4 through April 5.
Master Class will play Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m., Thursdays at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 8 pm. and Sundays at 2 pm. and 7:30 p.m.
Mulgrew comes to Paper Mill Playhouse following her Broadway performances in Equus opposite Daniel Radcliffe and Richard Griffiths as Hesther Saloman. Mulgrew starred as Captain Kathryn Janeway in Star Trek: Voyager from 1995 to 2001.
Master Class is the story of renowned opera diva Maria Callas, while teaching a master class in front of an audience. What begins as a class becomes an intimate and revealing look into her life: we learn about Callas’ tumultuous affair with Aristotle Onassis, her early days as an ugly duckling, the fierce hatred of her rivals and the unforgiving press that savaged her at first.
