London's 'Round-Heeled' will transfer

Following a recent off West End run, solo show “A Round-Heeled Woman,” starring Sharon Gless, will transfer to the West End’s Aldwych Theater for a limited engagement that begins Nov. 24.

“Round-Heeled Woman” is directed and adapted by Jane Prowse (“Up on the Roof”) from the memoir by Jane Juska. The play follows Juska, a retired teacher, who places an advertisement in the New York Review of Books suggesting sex “with a man I like. If you want to talk first, Trollope works for me.”

Gless, best known for starring with Tyne Daly in the 1980s TV skein “Cagney and Lacey,” made her West End debut in 1992 in an adaptation of Stephen King’s “Misery.” Her onscreen partner Daly will open in London in the transfer of “Master Class” one week after “A Round-Heeled Woman” closes at the Aldwych Jan. 14, making way for the dance show “Midnight Tango.”
