Hot Ticket: Mother isn't always right

Natasha Staley and Lisa Morgan star in Mrs. Warren's Profession, which opens the season of the Banyan Theater Company. George Bernard Shaw's play, about a prostitute and her prudish daughter, was banned in Britain in 1893 and not produced in a public performance until more than 30 years later when the playwright was deemed sufficiently respectable by virtue of having received the Nobel Prize in literature. For its fifth summer season, Banyan returns to the Cook Theatre at the FSU Center for the Performing Arts in Sarasota. Mrs. Warren's Profession opens tonight and runs through July 16. $27.50.
