Gless is a Round-Heeled Woman in the West End

Published 8 November 2011

Riverside Studios’ critically acclaimed production A Round-Heeled Woman will transfer into the West End later this month, with Sharon Gless in the lead role.

Jane Prowse’s production will finish its run at the Riverside Studios on 20 November and start performances at the Aldwych theatre on 24 November (press night 30 November), playing a strictly limited run until 14 January.

A Round-Heeled Woman centres on retired divorcee Jane Jusko’s plight trying to find love in California. After 30 years of being deprived of a man’s touch, Jusko, who is played by the Golden Globe Award-winning Gless, decides to place a saucy ad in The New York Review of Books looking for a man willing to make up for lost time.

Sixty-three replies and many dates later, Jusko put her experiences on paper and published the book that inspired Prowse’s stage adaptation, A Round-Heeled Woman – My Late-Life Adventures In Sex & Romance.

Gless was last seen in the West End in 1996 when she appeared in Chapter Two at the Gielgud theatre. The actress made her London stage debut three years earlier, starring opposite Bill Paterson in Misery at the Criterion theatre.

Best known for her screen work, for which she has won four Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe Award, Gless most famously played Christine Cagney in long-running police drama Cagney & Lacey. More recent television appearances include Nip/Tuck and BBC series The State Within.

Gless is joined in the production by the rest of the original Riverside Studios cast, Jane Bertish, Beth Cordingly, Barry McCarthy, Neil McCaul and Michael Thomson.
