Rebecca Luker, Michael Cumpsty & More Set for GTG/Project Shaw's THE DOCTOR'S DILEMMA Tonight

Gingold Theatrical Group's Project Shaw, under the leadership of Artistic Director David Staller, presents its 107th concert presentation of THE DOCTOR'S DILEMMA tonight, October 19 at 7pm, at Symphony Space's Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre (2895 Broadway at 95th St.).

THE DOCTOR'S DILEMMA features Michael McCorry Rose (Redpenny), Nora Chester (Emmy), Michael Cumpsty (Sir Colenso Ridgeon), Ames Adamson (Sir Patrick Cullen), Paxton Whitehead (Sir Bloomfield Bonington), Marc Vietor (Cutler Walpole), Tim Jerome (Leo Schutzmacher), Dan Daily (Dr. Blenkensop), Rebecca Luker (Jennifer Dubedat), Christian Campbell (Louis Dubedat), Blair Busbee (Minnie Tinwell), and Chris Ryan (Mr. Danby).

Deadline Theater critic Jeremy Gerard will be the Narrator & The Newspaper Man.

David Staller tell us that, "This particularly provocative comedy takes on the entire medical profession along with the importance of a National Health plan, while examining the value of science versus art--and remains as maddeningly relevant today as it did when it first appeared in 1906."

A question of medical ethics is central to THE DOCTOR'S DILEMMA: Dr. Colenso Ridgeon (Michael Cumpsty) must choose between saving Louis Dubedat (Christian Campbell)-a talented and charming artist who has borrowed money with no intention of repayment and has deceived his devoted wife Jennifer (Rebecca Luker)-and helping a poverty-stricken doctor who treats indigent patients. The dilemma is further complicated when the doctor realizes he may have fallen in love with Jennifer.

Tickets are $30 and are available by calling (212) 864-5400 or online at www.symphonyspace.org.
