Spotlight Theatre to Stage A FEW GOOD MEN, 8/30-9/27
Spotlight Theatre will celebrate the company's 50th theatrical production with their presentation of the courtroom thriller, A Few Good Men, opening Saturday, August 30 at 7:30 pm. The show will run Fridays through Sundays, and will close on Saturday, September 27th. Friday and Saturday performances will be at 7:30 pm, with Sunday matinees at 2:00 pm. All performances will be at the John Hand Theater, 7653 E. 1st Place, Denver.
From the author of The West Wing and The Social Network, this Broadway hit about the trial of two marines sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer assigned to the case expects a plea bargain and a cover up of what really happened. But when new evidence is discovered, not only are the two marines fighting for their lives, the entire Marine code of honor is put on trial.
Made popular by the 1992 film version, A Few Good Men originally had a long run on the Broadway stage in 1989. The play, while following the same story as the film, brings its own unique perspective to the dramatic events of this story. "The intimacy and the intensity of this stage play offer live theatre audiences a riveting experience that cannot be replicated in a movie," says director Bernie Cardell. "Audience members will feel like they are a part of this story, and we are so excited to bring this wonderful play to the Spotlight stage for our 50th production."
