Directed by Staller, the cast features Tony nominee Daniel Davis, Ed Dixon, Sarah Rose Kearns, Bill Kux, Lisa O'Hare, Matthew Rauch and David Turner.

Shaw’s first play, Widowers’ Houses, set in 1892, is "a hilarious yet scathing look at the ethics of making money. When a young doctor learns that his future father-in-law has earned his wealth by renting slum housing to the poor, the doctor refuses the tainted dowry that awaits him. But he must reconsider his righteous stance when he discovers alarming news about the source of his own income," according to press notes.

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).

The season will continue March 16 with the annual gala, April 6 with Misalliance, May 18 with Overruled, June 22 with Fanny's First Play, July 20 with Man and Superman, Sept. 21 with a Chekhov Comedy Event, Oct. 19 with The Dr.'s Dilemma, Nov. 23 with John Bull's Other Island and Dec. 21 with The Shewing-Up Of Blanco Posnet.

Symphony Space is located in Manhattan at 2537 Broadway (at 95th Street). Tickets, priced $30, are available by calling (212) 864-5400 or online at symphonyspace.org.
