Directed by Staller, the evening will feature award-winning playwright/actor Charles Busch, Tony winner Richard Easton, Obie and Drama Desk winner Roberta Maxwell and Patrick Page. TCM’s Robert Osborne will be the narrator.
"Some of Project Shaw’s alums will converge on Symphony Space to attack some of their favorite roles: characters they've never had a crack at before, or want one more look at," according to press notes. "Anything goes: no matter if age or sex appropriate! Super Shaw will include scenes from many of Shaw's greatest hits and some never heard of! Don't miss this good-natured evening of irreverent Shavian fun. Some of the roles these actors will be vying for will include Higgins, Eliza, Caesar, Cleopatra, Mrs. Warren, St. Joan, and many more."
Upcoming Project Shaw events include Village Wooing (Sept. 29), An Ibsen Evening (Oct. 27), The Millionairess (Nov. 24) and Major Barbara (Dec. 22).
Now in its ninth year, Gingold Theatrical Group's Project Shaw made history in December 2009 as the first company ever to present performances of every one of Shaw's 65 plays (including full-length works, one-acts and sketches).
