Feldshuh, Gets, Irving and More Cast in Shaw Project's You Never Can Tell, April 17

As with the Shaw Project's previous staged readings, You Never Can Tell--set for April 17th--will feature a star-studded cast.

Directed by David Staller, You Never Can Tell--a romantic comedy of errors--will feature Tovah Feldshuh (Golda's Balcony), Malcolm Gets (Amour, A New Brain), George S. Irving (Me and My Girl, Irene), Elena Shaddow (The Woman in White, Carnival at Paper Mill) and Paxton Whitehead (Absurd Person Singular, My Fair Lady), as well as Allen Fitzpatrick, Simon Kendal, Liz Morton and Nick Wyman.

The Shaw Project
--which aims to encompass all plays (long and short) by the legendary Irish playwright--is captained by Staller (Mrs. Warren's Profession at the Irish Rep), who will produce and direct the following currently-scheduled plays: the one-acts Overruled and Augustus Does His Bit on May 8th, Getting Married on June 19th, John Bull's Other Island on July 17th, The Apple Cart on September 18th, Misalliance on October 23rd, Captain Brassbound's Conversion on November 20th and The Philanderer on December 18th (with more to be announced). All the readings will be held at 7 PM on Monday, with the exception of the two one-acts (which will be presented at noon). Arms and the Man and Fanny's First Play--both with starry casts--were previously seen.

"The Irish born Shaw, who died at age 94 in 1950, is one of the most prolific writers of plays, books and treatises in the English language. His unyielding stand for human rights, particularly for women's rights, has become legendary. He encouraged general political awareness and the need for people to take responsibility for their own lives," according to press notes.

For reservations to the free reading, call The Players Club at 212-475-6116. For more information, visit  www.theshawproject.com.
