Gingold Theatrical Group

creates theatre and theatre-related programs that promote the humanitarian ideals central to the work of activist playwright George Bernard Shaw

Gingold Theatrical Group, now in its 16th year, creates theatre and theatre-related programs that promote the humanitarian ideals central to the work of activist playwright George Bernard Shaw, including universal human rights, the freedom of thought and speech, the equality of all living beings, and the responsibility of individuals to promote societal progress.

GTG was founded to embrace inclusion and diversity and continues to present and create work dedicated to giving voice to all members of society.

Our programs include full off-Broadway productions as part of our Shaw New York annual festival, our Project Shaw monthly reading series, outreach and education programs, as well as the cultivation of new plays through our Speakers’ Corner writers group.

All of GTG’s programming is designed to inspire lively discussion and peaceful activism with issues related to human rights, the freedom of speech, and individual liberty. This was the purpose behind all of Shaw’s work and why we’ve chosen him as our guide toward helping create a more tolerant and inclusive world through the exploration of the Arts.

Founded in 2006 by David Staller, GTG has carved a permanent niche for the work of George Bernard Shaw within the social and cultural life of New York City, and, through our Project Shaw reading series, was the first group ever to present all 65 of Shaw’s plays in performance. GTG brings together performers, critics, students, academics and the general public with the opportunity to explore and perform Shaw’s work and to create new work based on the values that Shaw championed. Through performances, symposiums, educational programs, new play development, and outreach, GTG encourages all people to rejoice in the possibilities of the future.

History

Inspired by Shaw’s artistry and activism, in 2006 Mr. Staller formed Gingold Theatrical Group, named for his godmother. Gingold creates theatre and theatre-related programs that promote the humanitarian ideals central to Shaw’s work: universal human rights, freedom of thought and speech, the equality of all living beings, and the responsibility of individuals to promote societal progress. The Company has carved a permanent niche for Shaw’s entertaining, wise and witty plays within the social and cultural life of New York City.

Through our Project Shaw readings, Gingold was the first group ever to present all 65 Shaw plays, featuring many of Broadway’s leading ladies and gentlemen. Our Off-Broadway productions, online readings, symposiums, educational programs, Speakers’ Corner new play development, and outreach inspire lively discussion and peaceful activism to help create a more tolerant and inclusive world through exploration of the arts. On this website resides one of the richest troves of Shaw research material to be found anywhere in the world. We invite you to explore the world of Shaw – and of Gingold Theatrical Group.
