Join us again for a Zoom Play Reading Series featuring works that we can perform together put together by Steve Eisdorfer. This Fall Steve is beginning with George Bernard Shaw’s Mrs. Warren’s Profession, a break through 1902 play about a woman who rose to be a successful madame after beginning her career as a prostitute. “Mrs. Warren’s Profession” continues to be one of Shaw’s most frequently produced plays,” Steve Eisdorfer said. As I write, a new production has just opened off-Broadway in New York. It is witty, dramatic, highly topical, and still a little shocking. It has great roles, both female and male.” Don’t miss the fun to perform together! The list of roles, play and everything else you will need are here.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the Zoom link and your role.
