Shaw series sets readings
Project Shaw takes a detour from the plays of George Bernard Shaw for its next reading, at 7 p.m. on Sept. 18 at Symphony Space (95th Street and Broadway). The group will present Rachel Crothers’ 1910 play A Man’s World, which examines double standards in judging men and women’s behavior. Jenn Thompson will direct the evening. The Shaw reading in October will be Captain Brassbound’s Conversion, at 7 p.m. on Oct. 23. In Shaw’s play, a famous lady arrives in a Moroccan port only to be taken captive by a vengeful pirate, but manages to counter his band of freebooters, an Arab army, and the entire U.S. fleet. Tickets for both events are $35 and may be obtained by calling (212) 864-5400 or visiting www.gingoldgroup.com. —Edward Karam
