Photo Coverage: 12 Angry Men Opens at Ahmanson

6:55 PM 2007

Twelve Angry Men, Roundabout Theatre's national touring production, opened Thursday night at the Ahmanson Theatre in downtown Los Angeles, with a handful of character actors turning out to support the cast which stars former television alums Richard Thomas and George Wendt.

Having undergone numerous transformations, including an extremely successful television to film adaptation in 1957 starring Henry Fonda, Twelve Angry Men epitomizes traditional drama, with a dozen men from all walks of life converging in a jury room to hash out the fate of another man's life.

Director Scott Ellis has decided to stick closely to the original book, keeping the play set in 1954 New York, and though Rose's book has the potential to work well under the guise of a modern reworking, the current interpretation reminds what made the original production so gripping.

Twelve Angry Men performs at Center Theatre Group's Ahmanson Theatre in downtown Los Angeles through May 6. For tickets visit the Center Theatre Group box office, located at 135 N. Grand Avenue in Los Angeles, or by phone at 213-628-2772.  Tickets can also be purchased online at
