Julie Halston, Jayne Houdyshell, Daphne Rubin-Vega and More Line Up for Project Shaw's SUPER SHAW WOMEN
Gingold Theatrical Group continues its 12th Season when it presents its 124th concert presentation, a special evening offering scenes and monologues from some of Shaw's greatest works.
Super Shaw Women will be performed by a company of talented women including Blair Brown, Julie Halston, Jayne Houdyshell, Mia Katigbak, Charlotte Moore, Daphne Rubin-Vega (with additional names soon to be revealed!) and directed by David Staller for one night only, Monday, July 17th at 7pm, at Symphony Space's Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre (2537 Broadway at 95th Street).
A brilliant cast of actresses will play every one of your beloved Shaw women in less than two hours that are sure to be wild, wacky, and completely inappropriate! The cast will showcase scenes and monologues with their favorite characters including scenes from Candida, Man And Superman, Mrs. Warren's Profession, Pygmalion, Back To Methuselah, The Apple Cart, Misalliance, Heartbreak House, and more.
"It's summer and we're determined to shake things up with some madcap madness, allowing some of our favorite actors to re-invent some of their favorite Shaw characters for one night only. They'll have the full run of Shaw's canon of 65 plays to toy with, whether age or sex appropriate, with a magnificent finale of everyone getting their chance to dive into Saint Joan!" said Mr. Staller.
Tickets are $35 and are available by calling (212) 864-5400 or online at www.symphonyspace.org. Special reserved VIP seating available for $50 by contacting the Gingold office 212-355-7823 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now celebrating its 12th 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.
For those interested in lively off-site discourses, each Project Shaw event is followed by a talk-back with cast members. GTG's David Staller is also hosting a monthly Shaw Club discussion group. They meet the Wednesday before every Project Shaw event at 520 8th Avenue. For reservations, which are required, call 212-355-7823 or email email@example.com.
