"To celebrate GTG's 100th Project Shaw we're throwing a party," artistic director Staller said in an earlier statement. "For $50 our patrons will get the play and a post-performance party with drinks, food and music. Or patrons may come to the play, only, for the usual $30. This promises to be a particularly festive evening."
How He Lied to Her Husband, according to press notes, is "Shaw's wicked parody of his own play, the classic Candida. The fashionable Aurora Bompas (Tyne Daly) has allowed the young poet (Tony Yazbeck) to write poems to her, without anticipating that her boxing fanatic husband (Daniel Davis) might find them. Which he does!"
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 Feb. 23 with Widowers' Houses, 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 Dr.'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 www.symphonyspace.org.
