James Monroe Iglehart & More Set for GTG/Project Shaw's THE SHEWING-UP OF BLANCO POSNET Tonight
Gingold Theatrical Group's Project Shaw, under the leadership of Artistic Director David Staller, presents its 109th concert presentation with Shaw's cowboy play about the old American West, The Shewing-Up of Blanco Posnet tonight, December 21 at 7pm, at Symphony Space's Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre (2537 Broadway at 95th Street).
Written in 1909, The Shewing-Up of Blanco Posnet is Shaw's rollicking tale of the Old American Wild West. This rarely seen mystery/comedy of an outsider accused of being a horse thief and is on the verge of being strung up when a mysterious woman appears.
The Shewing-Up of Blanco Posnet features William DeMeritt (Blanco Posnet), Tony winner James Monroe Iglehart (Elder Daniels), Everett Quinton (Nestor), Andrea Dora (Babsy), Mia Katigbak (Hannah), Marylee Martin Terrano (Jessie), Alex Coelho (Strapper Kemp), Mirirai Sithole (Feemy Evans), Raphael Nash Thompson (Sheriff Kemp), Sheria Irving (The Woman), Ken Glickfeld (Waggoner Jo), James Cleveland (The Fiddler), and Aaron Lee Battle will be the Narrator.
According to Staller, "We're celebrating our season finale with a holiday bash. TCM's Robert Osborne will host this post-performance party that will feature music, dancing, food, and the opportunity to mingle with the cast." Tickets are $50 (performance and party), $30 (performance only) and are available by calling (212) 864-5400 or online at www.symphonyspace.org.
