Gingold Theatrical Group -- which made history last December as the first company ever to present every play (including full-length works, one-acts and sketches) written by George Bernard Shaw -- continues its fifth year of PROJECT SHAW with CAPTAIN BRASSBOUND'S CONVERSION, Shaw's rarely seen comedy about wild pirate tales, the high seas and one intrepid woman, on Monday, October 25 at 7pm at The Players Club (16 Gramercy Park South) in Manhattan. David Staller produces and directs.
Project Shaw journeys to Morocco for CAPTAIN BRASSBOUND'S CONVERSION! In the comedy, Captain Brassbound (Marc Kudisch) is an infamous pirate, living his life for revenge. Into his world comes a notorious British lady adventurer (Harriet Harris) who not only takes him on, but the marauding Arab tribes and entire U.S. fleet, as well. This rarely seen Shaw gem has developed a cult following over the years. Come see why.
Tony Award-nominee Marc Kudisch, whose Broadway credits include 9 TO 5, CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG, ASSASSINS and THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE, stars as Captain Brassbound. Harriet Harris, who portrays Felicia Tilman on the hit TV series "Desperate Housewives" and won a Tony for
her role in THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE portrays Lady Cicely Waynflete. Joining Mr. Kudisch and Ms. Harris is Brad Oscar (SPAMALOT, THE PRODUCERS) as Rankin, a missionary who holds an explosive secret about Brassbound. The ensemble also includes Matthew Baldiga, Ariel Estrada,
British playwright Philip Glassborow (making his NY stage debut), Glenn Kalison, David Ian Lee, James Rana, and Paul Singleton. New York Post columnist Michael Reidel narrates the play, and Michael Feingold, theatre critic for the Village Voice hosts the evening.
