Alicia Witt, Tedra Millan and Daniella Pineda in Modern Persuasion
Alicia Witt’s all business as a rising exec in Modern Persuasion, a contemporary comic riff on Jane Austen’s social manners novel Persuasion, set in a Manhattan boutique PR firm. Witt’s Wren is approaching forty and happily single, but her aunt, played by Bebe Neuwirth, and her millennial colleagues seem desperate to get her a man. Bets are off when her ex shows up to take over the firm. Fun and games! What She Said’ Anne Brodie spoke with Witt.
