Photo Coverage: Project Shaw Presents ALICE SIT-BY-THE-FIRE
Gingold Theatrical Group's Project Shaw, under the leadership of Artistic Director David Staller, continues its 11th Season with its 118th concert presentation with J.M. Barrie's Alice Sit-By-The-Fire, last night at Symphony Space's Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre (2537 Broadway at 95th Street).The rarely seen but ever-delightful classic by James M. Barrie has a star-studded history. As a star vehicle ever since its debut in 1905 it has been catnip to many of the greatest ladies of the theatre including Ellen Terry, Ethel Barrymoreand Helen Hayes. Alice is the central figure who returns from India to England with her husband, and has the problem of re-adapting herself to the home and children she had left behind, along with the burden of the responsibility of adulthood. Alice Sit-By-The-Fire featured Martha Plimpton (Alice Grey), Reg Rogers (Colonel Robert Grey), Bobby Steggert (Stephen Rollo), Susannah Perkins (Amy Grey), Eason Rytter (Cosmo Grey), Clemmie Evans (Fanny), Midori Francis (Ginevra Dunbar), Dana Smith Croll (Nurse), Ava Ulloa (Richardson). 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.
