Beau Willimon's new play is set in Washington, D.C., where powerful friends are the only kind worth having, especially after the 2016 election. At the center is Chloe, a socialite armed with charm and wit, coming to terms with politics, her past, her marriage and an uncertain future. Dark humor and drama collide at this pivotal moment in Chloe's life, and in our nation's, when the truth isn't obvious and the stakes couldn't be higher.


  • The play marks playwright Beau Willimon’s Broadway debut. He is the creator of the Netflix original series House of Cards.
  • Willimon’s play is loosely based on the 1885 French comedy La Parisienne by Henri Becque.


The Parisian Woman premiered at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa, California, in 2013.
