Photo Coverage: Inside Opening Night of Pearl Theatre Company's YOU NEVER CAN TELL

The Pearl Theatre Company kicks off its 30th anniversary season-the second season in its new home on West 42nd Street-with the first New York revival in 15 years of George Bernard Shaw's You Never Can Tell in a co-production with the Gingold Theatrical Group that is directed by David Staller. Running September 3-October 13, the show's sumptuous costumes, elegant settings and Shavian wit will raise a champagne toast to a year of celebration at The Pearl, where Shaw, following Shakespeare, has been the second most produced playwright in The Pearl's history. The production is also the centerpiece of the Shaw New York 2013 festival.

Below, check out photos from opening night!

In You Never Can Tell, it's the turn of the 20th century, and a world-famous author and her grown children have returned to England after 18 years abroad. But when her missing husband (who may also be the missing father) appears out of the blue, this fascinating clan face love, family, money, social and political issues, women's rights-and the dangers of dentists in love. Shaw's whimsical wit whirls us into a world where sweeping change has unexpected comic consequences.

The cast of You Never Can Tell features Pearl Resident Acting Company (RAC) founding member Robin Leslie Brown as Mrs. Clandon, Pearl RAC memberBradford Cover as Fergus Crampton, Pearl RAC member Dominic Cuskern as Finch McComas, Pearl RAC member Dan Daily as Walter Boon, and Obie Award-winner and Pearl RAC member Sean McNall as Mr. Valentine, along with Ben Charles as Philip Clandon, Amelia Pedlow as Gloria Clandon,Zachary Spicer as Walter Bohun and Emma Wisniewski as Dolly Clandon.
