Gingold Theatrical Group's project Shaw presented THE APPLE CART by George Bernard Shaw – a comedy of a king and the hoops he has to jump through to stay on the throne – yesterday, June 18 at The Players Club in Manhattan. David Staller produced and directed the event and BroadwayWorld was on hand for the photo op!
Now in its seventh sold-out year, Gingold Theatrical Group's Project Shaw made history in December 2009 as the first company ever to present every play (including full-length works, one-acts and sketches) written by George Bernard Shaw.
THE APPLE CART is Shaw's 1929 farcical comedy of Royals set in the future. King Magnus (Patrick Page) must juggle his rebellious Cabinet (including Jim Brochu, Marianne Tatum, John Plumpis), his tempestuous mistress (Alison Fraser), his ambitious queen, and even an American ambassador determined to colonize England (Ron McClary) all on one wild day.
The cast featured Nora Chester, A.J. Shively, Scott Schafer, Jim Brochu, Patrick Page, John Plumpis, James Prendergast, Gibson Frazier, Jack Koenig, Marianne Tatum, Robin Leslie Brown, Alison Cimmet, Ron McClary and Alison Fraser.
