Gingold Theatrical Group's 12th season of Project Shaw will continue October 23 at 7 PM with a reading of George Bernard Shaw's comedy Captain Brassbound's Conversion at Symphony Space's Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre.
Artistic Director David Staller will direct a cast that includes Rebecca Luker, Max von Essen, Tony Sheldon, George Dvorsky, Mark Shanahan, Jeffrey Omura, Dan Dominques, Doug Plaut, Daniel Marconi, Thom Sesma, Evan Zes, Aaron Lee Battle, and NY1's Frank DiLella.
The comedy concerns Lady Cicely, who arrives in Morocco with Sir Howard, the infamous London judge. Their guide, however, turns out to be a legendary pirate with a long-held grudge again that very judge.
"This comedy is certainly one of the most unusual in the Shaw canon, combining the zany tone of of the Pirates of the Caribbean films, the old original Sweeney Todd stories, and a light romantic comedy. No other Shaw play packs in quite so much action and wacky characters. We’re very much looking forward to sharing this play with our audiences,” said Staller in a statement.
