Back to Methuselah: Part One, press notes state, is "Shaw’s 1921 play that tells the story of all Humanity. Starting in the Garden of Eden and sailing up through the 22nd century, this comedy tackles all the political and social issues Shaw is so notorious for. Do you have to see both parts to get it? No! Part Two of this play will be presented on February 27, and the two parts exist independently of each other."
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 $25, are available by calling (212) 352-3101. For more information visit www.projectshaw.com.
