The Originalist in Broadway THE ORIGINALIST
Asolo Repertory Theatre
1/20-3/5/2017
Justice Antonin Scaliaís unexpected death at age 79 has thrown a wrench into the political arena, but has brought intense interest in this daring new stage play that had its world premiere at Arena Stage last spring. When a bright, liberal law school graduate embarks on a nerve-wracking clerkship with Justice Scalia, she discovers him to be both an infuriating sparring partner and unexpected mentor. Written by Charles MacArthur Award-winning playwright John Strand and starring four-time Helen Hayes Award winner Edward Gero (who bears an uncanny resemblance to Scalia), this powerful work depicts passionate people risking heart and soul to defend their interpretation of the truth.

The Great Society in Broadway THE GREAT SOCIETY
Asolo Repertory Theatre
1/13-4/2/2017
On the heels of Asolo Repís wildly successful All the Way, The Great Society continues Robert Schenkkanís profound exploration of Lyndon Johnsonís turbulent years in the White House. In his second term as president, besieged by political opponents, Johnson summons all his political wiles to try to push through Congress some of the most important social programs in U.S. history. His vision of a Great Society became the most ambitious effort ever to test what American government is capable of achieving. And in doing so, to discover what it is not. Actor Nick Wyman returns to the Asolo Rep stage to reprise his role as L.B.J. in this unflinching examination of the morality of power.
