About Gingold Theatrical Group 

Now in its 17th year, Gingold Theatrical Group creates theatre and theatre-related programs to promote human rights, the freedom of speech and thought, and individual responsibility, as inspired by the work of playwright George Bernard Shaw.

Our programs include an annual off-Broadway production, Project Shaw, a monthly reading series, outreach, and education programs, as well as the cultivation of new plays through our Speakers’ Corner writers’ group. 

GTG’s 2021 off-Broadway production of Shaw’s MRS WARREN’S PROFESSION, was named “Best Revival of 2021” by The Wall Street Journal.  

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.
