From Chekhov, the evening features new translations of Swan Song, a brief play in which an actor finally takes a sobering look at his life after he has just given his final performance (featuring Tony winner George S. Irving and John Cariani); and A Tragedian in Spite of Himself, a comedic take on the roles we allow ourselves to undertake in life (featuring Cariani).

The Shaw offering is Press Cuttings, a short comedy about the struggle for women’s rights and the ever-present power of the press.

The cast for the one-night-only performance also includes Cynthia Harris, Jackie Hoffman, Christopher Innvar, Christine Pedi, Fritz Weaver and Diane Stilwell Weinberg.

Now celebrating its 10th 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).

The season continues Oct. 19 with The Doctor's Dilemma, Nov. 23 with John Bull's Other Island and Dec. 21 with The Shewing-Up of Blanco Posnet.

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