Gingold Theatrical Group's Project Shaw, under the leadership of Artistic Director David Staller, concluded its 11th Season when it presented its 119th concert presentation with Shaw's Androcles and the Lion, last night at Symphony Space's Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre (2537 Broadway at 95th Street).

One of Shaw's most beloved of absurd light comedies, the story following the fate of a group of Christians being faced with 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.

The cast of Androcles and the Lion featured Christine Pedi (Megaera), Seth Rudetsky (Androcles), L. Steven Taylor (the Lion), Nick Corley (Centurion), Nikki M. James (Lavinia), William DeMeritt (The Captain), Jay Russell (Captain-Lentulus), Everett Quinton(Mentellus), Warren Kelley (Spintho), Jim Brochu (Ferrovius), Evan Zes (The Ox Driver), Roberto Cambeiro (Retiarius), ChristIan Ryan (Secutor), Ward Sexton (The Call), Aaron Lee Battle (The Editor), Daniel Schwait (The Keeper), and Peter Bartlett (The Emperor). Ethan Litwin was the Narrator.

Now celebrating its 11th year, Gingold Theatrical Group's Project Shaw made history in December 2009 as the first company ever to present performances of every one of Shaw's 65 plays (including full-length works, one-acts and sketches). They are now also including plays by writers who most inspired Shaw to begin his playwriting career, including work by Chekhov, Ibsen, Wilde, Barrie, and Harley Granville-Barker--while continuing its new play development and educational programs.

The 2017 Project Shaw Season opens its 12th Season (with a year-long celebration of Women Take The Stage) with Mrs. Warren's Profession, its 120th concert presentation on January 22. Tickets now available!
