Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre

Expected Run Time is 120 minutes

  • Gingold Theatrical Group provides an invaluable -- and unique -- service to New Yorkers. Not only does it keep topnotch productions of great works of art before the public on a regular basis as no other theater company can, but it also does something less obvious. It keeps the tradition of intelligent argument, embodied in Shaw's plays but otherwise much lacking from public discourse, alive for those who need it most: the thinking people of a great city.
