David Staller, the acclaimed singer-actor who has produced and directed all of the Project Shaw offerings, handles those same duties for this reading.
The play, according to press notes, concerns "a glamorous pair of jewel thieves (Charles Busch and Robert Cuccioli) [who] convince a chronic young convalescent (Ryann Redmond) to steal her own jewels and run away with them to a tropical paradise. Her over-protective mother (Jackie Hoffman) comes chasing after them and a riotous time is had by all. This is Shaw's 1931 madcap high-comedy journey, which takes on fad diets, the medical profession, the military, war, religion, and sex. It's a short and lively comedic lark."
Project Shaw events for 2013 also include On the Rocks (July 22); Shaw with Ibsen's League of Youth (Sept. 16); Shaw with Wilde's short stories (Oct. 21); Shaw with Chekhov's short stories (Nov. 18); and Super Shaw (Dec. 16).
