Performances continue through Feb. 9 in Atlanta, GA.
Directed by Susan V. Booth, the cast includes Mark Cabus (The Tempest, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) as Albert Geller, Courtney Collins (Into the Woods, Managing Maxine) as Sarahann Geller, Ann Marie Gideon (Time Stands Still, Hamlet) as Louisa Geller, Courtney Patterson (By the Way, Meet Vera Stark; August: Osage County) as Rosalee Geller and Joe Sykes (Group Intelligence, Pluto) as Charles Heyman.
"The Geller Girls tells the story of young sisters Rosalee and Louisa Geller," press notes state. "For them, Atlanta is full of opportunity and optimism for the future. Rosalee has finally convinced her father to help her open her own dress shop and Louisa's childhood sweetheart should be about to officially pop the question. But Atlanta is on the eve of the Cotton States and International Exposition of 1895. And just like the Exposition was a huge catalyst for change and development in Piedmont Park, Atlanta, and the entire South, it brings change and uncertainty to the Geller girls. It also brings them the charming, handsome Charles Heyman from New York, and opens a door to the world beyond Atlanta that they may not be willing to close."
Shaffer's writing credits include Broke, Managing Maxine, Bluish and He Looks Good in a Hat.
