The evening honoed actress/director Judith Ivey, TCM television host Robert Osborne and late playwright, George Bernard Shaw.
Performers included Charles Busch, Alison Fraser, Joel Grey, Glen Roven, Sidney Outlaw, along with James Cleveland and his Irish Musician Consortium.
The evening, which began with a reception at 5 PM, followed by dinner at 6 PM and the performance at 7 PM, included "Shaw, festive Irish music, and a down-home traditional Irish/American dinner: corned-beef & cabbage, lamb stew, vegetarian shepherd’s pie, puddings and sweeties and plenty of wines, stout and ale… [as well as] stars, festive Irish musicians, shamrocks, raffles and auctions, and more."*
Gingold Theatrical Group’s goal is to "carve a permanent niche for the work of George Bernard Shaw within the social and cultural life of New York; bringing his canon and precepts to larger audiences while encouraging individuals to breathe these humanist ideals into their contributions for the future."
