TACT Theatre and Gingold Theatrical Group present Widowers' Houses Off-Broadway, the first play ever written by George Bernard Shaw. Following previews that began March 1, the production officially opens March 13.
Helmed by David Staller, performances take place at The Beckett Theatre @ Theatre Row. The engagement is scheduled to run through April 2.
The play was penned by Shaw in 1982 when he was a young arts journalist, written in response to a dare by a fellow critic. It follows the story of a man who uncovers a secret about his family-to-be and is forced to choose between his love and his ideals.
The Widowers' Houses revival features Jeremy Beck (The Cocktail Party), Jonathan Hadley (Rothschild & Sons), Hanna Cheek (The Persians…a comedy about war with five songs), Terry Layman (Cat On a Hot Tin Roof), Talene Monahon (Encores! The Wild Party) and John Plumpis (The Man Who Had All the Luck).
The production has scenic design by Brian Prather, lighting design by Peter West, costume design by Barbara A. Bell, sound design by Toby Jaguar Algya and prop design by Lytza Colon. Kelly Burns serves as production stage manager, with Cate DiGirolamo as production manager.
Tickets can be purchased online at Telecharge.com or by calling (800) 872-8997. The Beckett Theatre @ Theatre Row is located at 410 W. 42nd St., Manhattan.
