The Apple Cart, press notes state, is Shaw’s "1929 farcical comedy of Royals set in the future. King Magnus (Patrick Page) must juggle his rebellious Cabinet, his tempestuous mistress (Alison Fraser), his ambitious queen, and even an American ambassador determined to colonize England all on one wild day."
Past participants include Blair Brown, Mark Kudisch, Kerry Butler, Tyne Daly, Jonathan Hadary, Daniel Jenkins, Rebecca Luker, Michael Cerveris, Karen Ziemba, Michele Pawk, Bruce Vilanch, Jack Gilpin and George S. Irving.
The Players Club is located in Manhattan at 16 Gramercy Park South. Tickets, priced $30, are available by calling (212) 352-3101. For more information visit projectshaw.com.
