Butler, Cerveris, Hoffman, Morton, et al. Set for Man and Superman
The reading will be produced and directed by David Staller. It will be narrated by New York Post columnist Michael Reidel, and New York Magazine critic Jeremy McCarter will host the event.
In the play, Shaw explores the philosophy that humanity is the latest stage in a purposeful evolutionary movement of the "life force" toward ever-higher life forms. Man and Superman includes the lively debate scene often performed separately as "Don Juan in Hell." The play has been trimmed, so the reading's running time is expected to be about three hours.
