News   "Girls" Star Will Join Marin Mazzie for Reading of Misalliance Gingold Theatrical Group’s Project Shaw, which is under the leadership of founding artistic director David Staller, will continue April 6 at 7 PM with a reading of George Bernard Shaw’s 1910 high-flying comedy Misalliance at Symphony Space’s Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre.

Directed by Staller, the cast will feature Amelia Pedlow (Hypatia), Tony nominee Marin Mazzie (Lina Szczepanowska), Simon Jones (Lord Summerhays), Robert Creighton (Julius Baker), "Girls" star Becky Ann Baker (Mrs. Tarelton), Cary Donaldson (Johnny Tarleton), Nick Westrate (Joey Percival) and Richard Gallagher (Bentley).

In Misalliance, press notes state, "Shaw examines a variety of unsuitable combinations. The social and the political collide with the romantic and the practical; convention clashes with innovation; parents spar with children and the kids let the elders have it in return; the aristocrats mate uncomfortably with the merchant class, and-to top it all off there’s a lady aviatrix and a gun-toting socialist loose on the grounds!"

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 Doctor'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.
