The Project Shaw series continued Jan. 24 with a reading of George Bernard Shaw's Androcles and the Lion at the Players Club featuring an all-critic cast including Roma Torre, Michael Riedel, Michael Musto and more.
The light comedy, according to Project Shaw notes, "follows a group of Christians faced with a horrible death in the Roman Coliseum. Based on Aesop's most famous of Fables, Shaw gives it his unique twist, incorporating his passionate plea for human rights and the importance of tolerance."
