News   PHOTO CALL: Shear's Restoration Opens Off-Broadway
Playwright-performer Claudia Shear's new work, Restoration, opened Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop May 19.

In Restoration, Shear plays "Giulia, a down-on-her-luck art restorer from Brooklyn who receives what could possibly be a career-reviving job of 'refreshing' Michelangelo's David in time for its quincentennial celebration in Florence," according to NYTW notes.

The cast includes original La Jolla cast members Shear (Dirty Blonde), Alan Mandell (The Beard of Avon) and Natalija Nogulich (The Iceman Cometh) with newcomers Jonathan Cake (The Philanthropist, "Six Degrees") and Tina Benko (Irena's Vow).

Here is a look at the opening night bow and party:

Tickets to Restoration at NYTW, 79 E. Fourth Street, are available by calling (212) 279-4200. For more information visit
