About this show

This unexpected new comedy follows the battle of wits and the real life romance between socialite Charlotte Payne-Townsend and playwright George Bernard Shaw. When wealthy heiress Charlotte Payne-Townsend sets her sights on the famed author of Pygmalion, Mrs. Warren's Profession, and Major Barbara, the challenge of romancing this confirmed bachelor, philanderer and unromantic man is more complicated than in any of his stories. The New York Times hailed, "Engaging Shaw is a charming romantic comedy. If there's a minute of the play that's less than clever, you'll be hard pressed to find it" and Variety cheered, "A spirited and intelligent combat of words and sparkling banter."
