Gingold Theatrical Group will return to in-person performances with a revival of Bernard Shaw's Mrs. Warren’s Profession beginning October 12 at Theatre Row.
Directed by Artistic Director David Staller, the production will officially open October 27 for a limited run through November 20.
The cast will be led by Tony winner Karen Ziemba (Contact) in the title role with Tony nominee Robert Cuccioli (Jekyll & Hyde), David Lee Huynh (NAATCO’s Henry VI), Alvin Keith (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), Nicole King, and Raphael Nash Thompson (Heartbreak House). Katya Collazo and Max Roll are the understudies.
"The struggle for equal rights has always been the hot topic for Bernard Shaw. Mrs. Warren’s Profession (1895) was considered so incendiary in its time that it was banned for years in Britain and, when it finally debuted here in New York City, the entire cast was arrested on opening night. It’s not the plot point of prostitution that offended the officials, but the notion that a woman would struggle to create a successful life for herself in spite of the constraints set against her by law and society, and thrive without apology,” said GTG Artistic Director Staller.
The production will also have scenic design by Brian Prather, costumes by Asa Benally, lighting by Jamie Roderick, and sound by Frederick Kennedy. April Kline is the production stage manager.
