(Mahwah) – Two-time Tony Award winner Judith Ivey will perform Women on Fire,” a one-woman play, Friday, March 10 at 8 p.m. in the Sharp Theater on the campus of Ramapo College of New Jersey.

Women on Fire,” starring Ivey, was twice extended Off-Broadway, where it played to sold-out houses.  The play was nominated for a Lortel Award for Best Solo Show.
