Slicking her hair severely back, she added a splash of glitz with dangling drop earrings and balanced on a pair of burgundy stilettos.

She went for full-on glamour with her make-up look, working metallic eyeshadow, fluttery lashes and a berry lip.

Uma also posed with an arm around House of Cards creator Beau Willimon, who wrote the play.

He cut a dapper figure in a navy suit teamed with a pale blue tie.?

She later stood for the cameras flanked by co-stars Josh Lucas and Marton Csokas.

Josh donned a perfectly fitted, finely checked brown suit, teaming a black tie with black shoes and added a splash of contrast with a white dress shirt.

Meanwhile, Marton - whose screen credits include Celeborn in The Lord Of The Rings trilogy - buttoned a walnut brown blazer over a black dress shirt and trousers.

Josh, Uma, Beau and Marton also stood as a group to be photographed with the play's director Pam MacKinnon, who was dressed in blue and black.

The Parisian Woman, by House Of Cards creator Beau Willimon, had its world premiere with a different cast at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa in 2013.

It is 'inspired by' the Henry Becque play La Parisienne, going by a program note Beau wrote for the South Coast Repertory production, as cited in the Los Angeles Times.?

La Parisienne first opened in Paris in 1885.?

Hamilton Tony-nominee Phillipa Soo, who recently also starred in a Broadway musical adaptation of Amélie,?cut a glamorous figure in an off-the-shoulder gown.

The bright blue and pink number was split at the front, offering a view of her hot pink ankle-strap stilettos, and she wore her hair swept back.

While Uma, Phillipa, Blair, Marton and Josh are all in the show, a couple of famous names who are not still turned up and got photographed on opening night.

One of them was Debra Messing, who wore hoop earrings over an all-black ensemble that included a seemingly airtight pair of glinting trousers.

The star of the newly resuscitated Will And Grace wore her wavy red hair down.

Another was the designer Zac Posen, who had buttoned a silver suit over a charcoal turtleneck and wrapped himself in a raven-colored overcoat.

Blair, Josh, Uma, Phillipa and Marton were all photographed linking hands onstage as they took their bow together after finishing up the play.

Reviewing the show in the New York Times, Jesse Green?warned 'you'd get bored' and dismissed the piece as 'a collection of every cozy cliché to be mined from the deep catalog of stories about powerful intrigues and human deceit.'

He vamped: 'The setups are unlikely, the payoffs banal. Call it "Dangerless Liaisons."'

Uma, whom Deadline?recently reported has left Creative Artists Agency after two years as its client, posted a blistering Instagram message on Thanksgiving.

The post took aim at Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced movie mogul facing a flood of allegations of sexual misconduct ranging from harassment to rape.

Wishing her fans on the holiday, she wrote: 'I am grateful today, to be alive, for all those I love, and for all those who have the courage to stand up for others.'

She continued: 'I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in case you couldn’t tell by the look on my face.

'I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so... Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! (Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators - I’m glad it’s going slowly - you don’t deserve a bullet) -stay tuned,' she added.

The film star signed the message: 'Uma Thurman'.

Her attached photo as the image of her as the avenging Bride in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill Vol. 1 - which like its sequel, also starring Uma, was a Weinstein film.

Meanwhile, Beau famously created House Of Cards, whose star Kevin Spacey was himself recently fired after being accused of sexual misconduct.

Actor Anthony Rapp told?Buzzfeed?in October that Kevin made an inebriated advance on him in the 1980s when he - Anthony - was only 14 years old.

In the wake of the revelation, all his scenes in the new Ridley Scott film All The Money In The World are being speedily re-shot, with Christopher Plummer stepping in to play Kevin's role of J. Paul Getty instead.

The film is still scheduled, as before, to be released on December 22.
