Patrick Page, Richard Easton & Roberta Maxwell Set for GTG's SUPER SHAW, 7/28
Gingold Theatrical Group's PROJECT SHAW, under the leadership of Founding Artistic Director David Staller, presents its 95th production, an evening of Super Shaw, on Monday, July 28 at 7pm, at Symphony Space's Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre (2895 Broadway at 95th St.).
Some of Project Shaw's alums will converge on Symphony Space to attack some of their favorite roles: characters they've never had a crack at before, or want one more look at. Anything goes: no matter if age or sex appropriate! Super Shaw will include scenes from many of Shaw's greatest hits and some never heard of! Don't miss this good-natured evening of irreverent Shavian fun. Some of the roles these actors will be vying for will include Higgins, Eliza, Caesar, Cleopatra, Mrs. Warren, St. Joan, and many more.
Directed by David Staller, Super Shaw features award-winning playwright/actor Charles Busch, Tony winner Richard Easton, Obie and Drama Desk winner Roberta Maxwell, and Patrick Page (Casa Valentina). TCM's Robert Osborne will be narrator.
Project Shaw events for 2014 include Village Wooing (September 29), An Ibsen Evening (October 27), The Millionairess (November 24).
Now in its ninth year, Gingold Theatrical Group's Project Shaw made history in December 2009 as the first company ever to present performances of every one of Shaw's 65 plays (including full-length works, one-acts and sketches). GTG presents an annual festival, SHAW NEW YORK, which includes a fully-mounted Shaw play. Its 2014 festival will bring The Pearl Theatre Company and GTG together to co-produce Shaw's Major Barbara, directed by David Staller, this November and December. Tickets are now on sale at The Pearl box office. www.pearltheatre.org.
