Miss Witherspoon, a new comedy by three-time Obie Award-winner Christopher Durang, is about a woman in a netherworld who is forced to return to earth and relive her life until she does it right. Directed by Emily Mann (who staged last year's exquisite Anna in the Tropics), the play stars the marvelous Kristine Nielsen in the title role, with a supporting cast that includes downtown favorite Colleen Werthmann.
