Tony Sheldon, Mary Beth Peil & More to Star in George Bernard Shaw's GETTING MARRIED this June

Gingold Theatrical Group's Project Shaw, under the leadership of Artistic Director David Staller, continues its 12th Season when it presents its 123rd concert presentation with Shaw's curious 1908 comedy Getting Married on Monday, June 26 at 7pm, at Symphony Space's Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre (2537 Broadway at 95th Street).

Directed by David Staller, Getting Married features Robert Zukerman (Alderman Collins), Tony nominee Tony Sheldon (Bishop of Chelsea), Stephen Shore (Cecil Sykes), Kimberly Immanuel (Edith Bridgenorth), Bradford Cover (General Bridgenorth), Richard Gallagher (St. John Hotchkiss), Cynthia Darlow (Alice Bridgenorth), Rachel Botchan (Leo Bridgenorth), Kelly McAndrew (Lesbia Grantham), Darius de Haas (Reginald Bridgenorth), Thom Sesma (Rev. O.C. Soames), and Tony nominee Mary Beth Peil (Mrs. George Collins). Daphne Gaines is the Narrator.
It's a June wedding! Or is it? George Bernard Shaw's Getting Married is a provocative tale of creative couplings. The Bishop's daughter is getting married, but second thoughts are flying through the air. Lesbia is determined to live without a man, but wants to have a child. Hotchkiss has broken up a marriage but is it the husband or wife he's interested in? All converge to forge a partnership agreement between consenting adults to try and circumvent the traditional marriage contract. And then the mysterious Mrs. Collins arrives to throw everyone off balance.
According to David Staller, "The idea of examining the definition of what marriage means is nothing new. Even in 1908, Shaw was inspired to question the purpose of legal commitments and who has the right to define unions between two consenting adults. This comedy is wall to wall delightful surprises."
