Photo Coverage: Project Shaw Presents ANDROCLES AND THE LION

Gingold Theatrical Group -- which made history as the first company ever to present every play (including full-length works, one-acts and sketches) written by George Bernard Shaw -- continuedits fifth year of PROJECT SHAW with George Bernard Shaw's beloved classic ANDROCLES AND THE LION, starring a cast of New York theater journalists -- on January 24 at The Players Club. David Staller produced and directed. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the event and brings you photo coverage below.

One of Shaw's most beloved of absurd light comedies, ANDROCLES AND THE LION tells the story of several Christians facing a horrible death in the Roman Coliseum. Based on Aesop's most famous of Fables, Shaw gives it his unique twist, incorporating his passionate plea for human rights and the importance of tolerance.

"Before becoming a playwright, Shaw was a well-known music and theatre critic who occasionally took roles in his own plays," says director and producer David Staller. "Since the Project Shaw readings are not open to reviews, each performance has featured at least one critic as host, narrator or actor. So just for the fun of it, this performance will feature an all-critic cast."

The ensemble of New York Theatre journalists included David Cote (TIME OUT NY and NY1), Joe Dziemianowicz (DAILY NEWS), Michael Feingold (VILLAGE VOICE), Adam Feldman (TIME OUT NY), Peter Filichia (STAR LEDGER), David Finkle (THEATERMANIA), Michael Musto (VILLAGE VOICE), Patrick Pacheco (NY 1), Michael Riedel (NY POST), Michael Schulman (NEW YORKER), David Sheward (BACKSTAGE), Raven Snook (TIME OUT NY), Roma Torre (NY1), Elizabeth Vincentelli (NY POST), Jason Zinoman (NYTIMES), and more.
