Maryann Plunkett and Jay O. Sanders to Star in VILLAGE WOOING

Gingold Theatrical Group has announced the next presentation of the 2021 - '22 Season of Project Shaw, a special series of evenings offering some of Shaw's greatest works and those of his contemporaries, presented monthly at Symphony Space's Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre (2537 Broadway at 95th Street).

The season continues on December 13th (7pm) with Village Wooing, George Bernard Shaw's sparkling short romantic comedy. Village Wooing is the perfect antidote to the holiday blues. Celebrate Gingold's return to live in-person performances at Symphony Space with two beloved, multiple award-winning, Broadway stars, Maryann Plunkett and Jay O. Sanders. In this charming play, two people determined to remain single meet on an around-the-world cruise. This chance encounter changes their lives in the most unexpected ways! Written by Bernard Shaw in 1933 while he was, himself, taking his first world cruise.

"Though we kept these play readings going online during the last year and a half, and we'll continue with an online presence, reconnecting with our in-person community is what we've most missed! We're just finishing the in-person off-Broadway production of Shaw's Mrs. Warren's Profession and decided to celebrate the end of this challenging year with a party, of sorts, with two of my favorite humans: Maryann and Jay," said Mr. Staller. "Just being with them is a party, and this incredibly surprising comedy is just the ticket!"

All the plays in this series are presented in a concert-reading format at the Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theater at Symphony Space, 2537 Broadway at 95th Street. Tickets are $40 and are available by calling (212) 864-5400 or online at www.symphonyspace.org.
