Photo Coverage: Inside Project Shaw's DON JUAN IN HELL
Following eight sold-out years of readings at The Players Club in Gramercy Park, Gingold Theatrical Group's PROJECT SHAW, under the leadership of Artistic Director, David Staller, has officially moved to Symphony Space's Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre (2895 Broadway at 95th St.). The debut Shaw play to inaugurate Project Shaw's new home was Shaw's Don Juan in Hell last night, October 28.
Directed by David Staller, Don Juan in Hell starred Tony Award winner Richard Easton (The Statue), Tony Award nomineesMichael Cumpsty (The Devil) and Alison Fraser (Dona Ana) with Max Gordon Moore (Don Juan). The evening was hosted byRobert Osborne of Turner Classic Movies.
Don Juan in Hell: This infamous dream scene from Shaw's epic comedy Man and Superman (which Staller directed last year at Irish Rep) offers a quartet of characters exploring the notion of where to spend eternity: Heaven or Hell. They entice each other with opposing points of view in this language-rich highly prized Shavian play-within-a-play, which is inspired by Mozart's Don Giovanni.
