Directed by Staller, the cast features Marin Mazzie (Lina Szczepanowska), Paxton Whitehead (Tarleton), Simon Jones (Lord Summerhays), Alison Fraser (Mrs. Tarelton), Amelia Pedlow (Hypatia), Robert Creighton (Julius Baker), Nick Westrate (Joey Percival), Cary Donaldson (Johnny Tarleton), Adam Petherbridge (Bentley) with Charlotte Moore as the evening's narrator.

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 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.
