Special Event

She wants to marry. He doesn’t. Bernard Shaw’s witty masterpiece hits the stage in all its pulse-racing glory. It is often done without its dazzling third act, Don Juan in Hell, but not this time. A wildly delicious day of theatre, interrupted only by an equally delicious lunch.

There will only be 17 performances of this once-in-a-lifetime theatrical event, so book early.
Take the Shaw Express! Specialized bus service on Man and Superman performance days.
