Gingold Theatrical Group, under the artistic direction of David Staller, continues its Project Shaw series September 18 at 7 PM with a reading of Rachel Crothers' A Man's World at Symphony Space's Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre.
Crothers' play follows a group of aspiring Greenwich Village artists. “Frank is emerging as a novelist of some renown while raising a small son on her own,” according to production notes. “She's determined to live life on her own terms, refusing to allow men to impose societal expectations on her personal choices.”
“A Man's World is the logical next step in our theme for the year. This charming and powerfully entertaining play from 1910 dives into the inequalities we all face and the double standards in judging male/female behavior that seem never to go away,” said Staller in an earlier statement. “As we continue to explore the work of playwrights sharing the vital humanitarian precepts so championed by Shaw, we're thrilled to be presenting work by Rachel Crothers, a pioneer writer in the world of exploring women's rights on the stage.”
Tickets are $35 and are available by calling (212) 864-5400 or online at SymphonySpace.org. Special reserved VIP seating is available for $50 by contacting the Gingold office (212) 355-7823 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
