Kudisch, Jenkins, Etc. Set for Project Shaw's 'Bashville'

Gingold Theatrical Group is presenting George Bernard Shaw's Admirable Bashville, May 21 at The Players at Gramercy Park, 7PM. The show, produced and directed by David Staller, is part of the Gingold's Project Shaw program, dedicated to presenting all 50 of Shaw's plays in a concert reading format.

Admirable Bashville stars Marc Kudisch, Louis Zorich, Daniel Jenkins, Kevin Joseph, Graham Rowat, Robert Ian Mackenzie, George S. Irving, Charlotte Rae, Patricia Conolly, and others.  The New York Post's Michael Riedel will serve as host.

Admirable Bashville, based on Shaw's novel Cashel Byron's Profession, follows world champion boxer Cashel Byron as he tries to court aristocrat Lydia Carew without revealing his true profession. Written as a Shakespeare parody, the show is described as "a riotous Shaw comedy about sex, manners, African chiefs, idealistic maidens, artistic young men, love (kind of), and boxing."

Press notes state, "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."

Tickets are $15, and will be available May 1, at www.projectshaw.com or by calling 212-352-3101.
