      Project Shaw: Arms and the Man

      Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre

      Arms and the Man, one of Shaw’s most enduringly popular comedies, is on just about everybody’s ‘Favorite Shaw’ list. The plot follows a hunted soldier who, seeking refuge in a young lady’s boudoir, starts in motion a series of highly engaging and unlikely comedic events. His unusual philosophies about love, war and life in general open up a world of thought she’d never previously entertained--certainly not with her dashing war-hero fiancée who also arrives unexpectedly. This early work of Shaw’s is remarkably pithy.

      These script-in-hand all-star readings are always sold out.

      Each month, Project Shaw brings you either one of Shaw's scintillating plays or a play by those who shared his ‘art as activism’ view of life. This is the acclaimed staged reading series that has been playing to sold-out crowds for the last 13 years!

      "Gingold Theatrical Group provides an invaluable -- and unique -- service to New Yorkers. Not only does it keep topnotch productions of great works of art before the public on a regular basis as no other theater company can, but it also does something less obvious. It keeps the tradition of intelligent argument, embodied in Shaw's plays but otherwise much lacking from public discourse, alive for those who need it most: the thinking people of a great city." -- Jesse Green, New York Magazine.
