Rehearsals began last week for Poor Man Production’s Twelve Angry Men, written by Reginald Rose and directed by Joey Folsom. Scheduled to open on 14 August 2009, the show will be performed in the Castleview Ballroom high atop the Sterling Hotel Dallas. Brad Stephens has been cast in the role of Juror #7.
Twelve Angry Men is a play adapted from Rose’s 1954 teleplay for the CBS Studio One anthology television series. Initially staged as a live production on 20 September 1954, the episode garnered three Emmy Awards. The drama was later rewritten for the stage in 1955 under the same title and again for a feature film, 12 Angry Men (1957). The play’s Broadway debut came fifty years later on 28 October 2004 at the Roundabout Theatre, where it ran for 328 performances.
