George Street Playhouse will present Twelve Angry Men, March 13 through April 8. Directed by David Saint, the production will star: With David Adkins, John Bolger, Jim Bracchitta, David Canary, Scott Drummond, Gregg Edelman, Jonathan Hadary, Jonathan C. Kaplan, Andrew Nogasky, James Rebhorn, David Schramm, Lee Sellars and Michael Sirow.
As BroadwayWorld previously reported, three-time Emmy Award winner and Tony nominee Jack Klugman – who is the last living cast member from the 1957 movie of Twelve Angry Men, then playing the young “Juror 5” - will be returning to the stage at George Street Playhouse to star in the play, now cast as the eldest of the twelve, “Juror 9”.
The landmark television drama, turned major motion picture and Broadway blockbuster, begins as twelve men enter an airless jury room on a blistering summer day. Their task is to return a verdict against an inner-city youth charged with the murder of his father, where a guilty vote equals a mandatory death sentence. With testimony from two witnesses, their deliberations should be brisk – until one lone Juror lights the fuse that will make this “open and shut case” explode like a stick of dynamite.
