PROJECT SHAW – An Oscar Wilde Soiree!

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 am on [day], repeating indefinitely

$30

Gingold Theatrical Group is dedicated to presenting works about Human Rights with George Bernard Shaw as our guide. In this regard, GTG’s goal is to carve a permanent niche for the work of George Bernard Shaw within the social and cultural life of New York; bringing his canon and precepts to larger audiences while encouraging individuals to breathe these humanitarian ideals into their contributions for the future.

 

Since 2006, we have produced the successful series PROJECT SHAW here in New York City. In December 2009, we became the first group ever to present every one of Shaw’s plays—all 65—in performance. After eight years downtown at The Players, we’re delighted to bring Project Shaw to its new uptown home, Symphony Space! This legendary New York center of literary life is the perfect venue for bringing Shaw to New York by the month.

THE PORTRAIT OF MR. W.H.
We’ll be presenting an adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s notorious short story that offers a theory for whom Shakespeare might truly have written his infamous Sonnets. In Wilde’s hands, the inspiration for the world’s most famous poems is a beautiful young actor in Shakespeare’s company. In attempting to prove this theory, a pair of men face their most secret fears.

With a charming musical interlude by … Mr. Ed Dixon with musical director Mr. Brad Gardner
