Photo Coverage: Inherit the Wind Opening Night

Inherit the Wind, starring two time Tony Award-winners Christopher Plummer and Brian Dennehy, opened April 12th at the Lyceum Theatre.  Tony Award-winner Doug Hughes directs.

The play "is a fictionalized retelling of the famous 1925 "Monkey Trial," in which science teacher John Scopes was tried and convicted for teaching Darwin's theory of evolution, violating a Tennessee law that forbade teaching any theory that conflicted with the biblical conception of divine creation.  Mr. Dennehy will play the role of attorney Matthew Harrison Brady (based on William Jennings Bryan), and Mr. Plummer will play attorney Henry Drummond (based on Clarence Darrow)," state production notes.

The play is produced on Broadway by Boyett Ostar Productions, The Shubert Organization, Lawrence Horowitz, Jon Avnet/Ralph Guild, Roy Furman, Debra Black/Daryl Roth, Bill Rollnick/Nancy Ellison Rollnick, and Stephanie McClelland.
