Come celebrate the 75th anniversary of Lakewood Playhouse by watching the enthralling judicial drama written by Reginald Rose.
Lakewood Playhouse is celebrating its 75th anniversary with a lineup of fantastic shows. The Playhouse first opened its doors in 1938 and ever since it has been producing a variety of plays from varying genres.
Currently playing at the Playhouse is “12 Angry Men,” produced by Reginald Rose. The judicial drama entails the story of a 17-year-old boy who is facing trial for the stabbing of his father. What appears to be an open-and-shut case turns out to be a lot more complex after one of the twelve jurors begins opening the others’ eyes to the facts. “12 Angry Men” is a classic and tense drama about the very human part of the American judicial system. The play was also adapted onto the silver screen in 1957 and starred Henry Fonda and Lee J. Cobb, among others. The film received immense critical acclaim and scores a 100 percent rating on the famous movie review website, Rotten Tomatoes.
The play’s first showing was on February 21st, 2014 and it will continue playing until March 16th, 2014. Tickets can be purchased on the Lakewood Playhouse website, lakewoodplayhouse.org, and are priced for non-musicals at $25 for adults, $22 with a military discount, $21 with a senior discount and $19 with a student and educator discount.
