Gingold Theatrical Group's Project Shaw presents George Bernard Shaw's final full-length play, BUOYANT BILLIONS, on Monday, October 22nd at 7pm at The Players Club (16 Gramercy Park South) in Manhattan. David Staller produces and directs.
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.
BUOYANT BILLIONS is one of Shaw's wittiest and least-known plays, written in 1948, towards the end of his very long life. In the play, set after WWII, a rich, young man decides to venture forth into the world and become a professional "world betterer." Along the way he meets a rich, young saxophone-playing heiress who treats him so dreadfully that he becomes fascinated by her — and her entire peculiar family.
The cast features Stephen James Anthony (War Horse), Jennifer Cody (Disney's "The Princess and The Frog," SHREK THE MUSICAL), William DeMeritt, George Dvorsky (CLOSER THAN EVER), Hunter Foster (MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, URINETOWN), Andrea Lynn Green (HARRISON TX), Drew McVety (CYRANO DE BERGERAC), Hal Robinson, Margaret Loesser Robinson (NEW GIRL IN TOWN, MAN AND SUPERMAN), Victor Slezak (THAT FACE), Karen Stanion, Mark Waldrop (NEWSICAL), Lenny Wolpe (OLD JEWS TELLING JOKES), and Henry Yuk (NO FOREIGNERS BEYOND THIS POINT). The guest host is Gordon Cox of Variety.
David Staller produces and directs all of the PROJECT SHAW readings.
