Gingold Theatrical Group's 18th season of Project Shaw, inspired by the works of George Bernard Shaw, will launch April 10 with a reading of his Misalliance at Symphony Space’s Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre.
The cast of the 7 PM reading will feature Fareeda Ahmed (Brecht on Brecht), Tony nominee Charles Busch (The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife), Nick Cearley (You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown), Dan Domingues (Caesar and Cleopatra), Aziza Gharib (Cymbeline), Tony winner Randy Graff (City of Angels), Christopher Innvar (Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune), Shawn Kumar Jain (Pericles), Thom Sesma (A Man of No Importance), and Tony nominee A.J. Shively (A Man of No Importance). David Staller will direct.
In Misalliance, the social and the political elements of British society collide with the romantic and the practical; the aristocrats take on the middle classes and vice versa.
“Though it hardly seems possible, we're now joyously preparing to launch into our 18th year of this unique series,” says Artistic Director Staller. “We founded Gingold Theatrical Group in 2006 as a response to our concerns about basic human rights and free speech under the Bush administration, and our mission has never seemed more vitally important. GTG was initially founded to produce Project Shaw, but the series is now just one part of the company, which produces full productions, hosts new play development labs, and facilitates three inner-city educational programs.”
Additional readings for the series, which aims to provoke peaceful discussion and activism, will be announced at a later date.
