It’s the ultimate jury drama on stage again, just like in 1995 when it became the company’s very first show, and first hit. Now TACT Artistic Director Jack Marshall, who directed that that acclaimed production (see a review of the original production here) will do it one last time. with an all-star cast made up of veterans from the first dozen jurors supplemented by outstanding male performers who enhanced over 60 TACT shows between them.

Departing from the company’s tradition of auditioning the cast of every show, Marshall has cast exclusively veteran TACT actors, what he calls his “dream cast.” The group includes five of the original production’s cast members, all but one in a new role, and the top five male performers in total TACT appearances. The Twelve Angry Men are Craig Miller, Steve Ferry*, Michael Replogle*, Joe Cronin, Evan Crump, Michael Sherman, Bruce Alan Rauscher*, Steve Lebens, Lyle Blake Smithers, David Jourdan*, Brian Crane, and John Tweel*. Those noted with an * performed in the 1995 production.)

TACT resident director Ellen Dempsey will portray the Guard.

Marshall is assisted by longtime TACT collaborator Tom Fuller and by Quinn Anderson. The show’s production manager and sound designer is Ed Moser, with set design by Mike deBlois and props design by Eleanor Gomberg. Lighting design is by Marc Allan Wright and costume design is by with Catherine Casino as wardrobe mistress. Lindsey E. Moore is the stage manager.

Twelve Angry Men is the final production at The American Century Theater. Since that first production of this show, the company has followed its mission to rediscover classic works of American theater, particularly those first produced during what Time publisher Henry Luce called “the American Century.”

Running time: 1 hour, 45 minutes, with no intermission.

Please note: This performance includes cigarette smoking.
