Comedy Tonight! This farcical comedy from 1894 takes place during a battle between two European nations. An enemy soldier (Cerveris) is found hiding in the bedroom of a young woman (Dizzia), the daughter of the Major of his enemy. After she helps him escape he returns, and she finds herself torn between deciding between her heroic soldier fiance (Kudisch) and the chocolate-hungry man she'd hidden in her boudoir. Musical buffs will remember this as the play that was turned into the operetta, 'The Chocolate Soldier.'

'Arms and the Man' will be staged on Mondary, January 25 at 7pm. The Players is located at 16 Gramercy Park South (20th St. east of Park Av).

The Players -- Project Shaw performs at New York's most legendary private club, The Players. Located at 16 Gramercy Park South, (which is the equivalent of 20th St east of Park Avenue). In 1888, Edwin Booth, America's pre-eminent Shakespearean actor, and 15 other incorporators, including Mark Twain and General William Tecumseh Sherman, founded The Players. Modeled after London's famed theatrical club, The Garrick. The Players was the first American club of its kind. The club boasts portraits by, among others, John Singer Sargent, as well as unique theatrical memorabilia. For more information about the club click on the link below, or phone 212-475-6116.
