Past festival events have included:
The Shaw Symposium – GTG brings together a panel of international scholars, directors, and actors to examine some of Shaw’s favorite socio-political ideas.
Readings of the new works GTG is developing through our Speakers’ Corner writers’ group and other programs.
The Critics’ Symposium – As Shaw was a critic before he was a playwright, we assemble a panel of New York’s leading theatre critics to discuss the ever changing nature of arts journalism.
The Shaw Concert – To celebrate Shaw’s music criticism, GTG offers a program of composers Shaw championed as ‘modern,’ including Wagner, Elgar and Brahms. The Shaw Concert also includes at least one new piece by a young composer, highlighting Shaw’s determination to encourage new work.
