BEA(U)TIFUL IN THE EXTREME Plays The Roxy, Opens 4/1

The epic adventure of the Lewis and Clark Expedition is relived in the regional premiere of BEA(U)TIFUL IN THE EXTREME*, opening at the Roxy Regional Theatre on Friday, April 1, at 8pm.

In this new play by Leon Martell, the legendary expedition is recalled in flashbacks as Meriwether Lewis struggles to come to grips with his experience and the meaning of America. As Lewis sets out to edit his final report, he is haunted by visions of Thomas Jefferson, Sacagawea, the hospitable but doomed Mandan people, raging rapids, suspicious Lakota warriors, frozen mountain passes, and York, the slave seeking his own definition of freedom.

Mark Cabus, founding artistic director of Nashville's award-winning Naked Stages and Green Room Projects, directs this stellar ensemble cast -- Ryan Bowie, Ashton Crosby, Gili Getz, TEd Jones, Travis Kendrick, Keith Patrick McCoy, Brandon Meeks, Keith Panzarella and Kendall Anne Thompson -- as they perform over three dozen roles.

BEA(U)TIFUL IN THE EXTREME runs April 1 through April 9, playing Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, with a 2pm matinee on Saturday, April 9. Tickets are $15 (adults) and $10 (ages 13 and under) and may be reserved online at, by phone at (931)645-7699, or at the theatre during regular box office hours (9am-2pm, weekdays).
