Gingold Theatrical Group's PROJECT SHAW Presented "BUOYANT BILLIONS" by George Bernard Shaw on Monday, February 16th at the Players Club, 16 Gramercy Park South. BroadwayWorld's took in the witty night of drama and fun!
PROJECT SHAW, now in its third of four years, continues tackling every play George Bernard Shaw ever wrote. This was its 35th presentation.
BUOYANT BILLIONS is one of Shaw's wittiest and least known plays, written towards the end of his VERY long life. The plot: after WWII, a rich young man (Bryan Batt) decides to venture forth into the world and become a professional 'world betterer.' Along the way he meets a rich young saxophone playing heiress (Veanne Cox) who treats him so dreadfully that he becomes fascinated by her...and her entire peculiar family.
The cast also stars George S. Irving, Charlotte Moore, Ed Dixon, Graham Rowat, Loni Ackerman, Ezra Barnes, Emma Archid, William DeMeritt, John Martello and Marshall Factora. The evening's host will be critic David Sheward. Don't miss this one: it's a rich opportunity!
Tickets are only $20 and are available after the first of the month. Call at 212-352-3101 or log onto www.PROJECTSHAW.com.
The Players is New York's most legendary private club. The former residence of Edwin Booth, it became a club for those interested in the arts in 1888.
