The Originalist - 2018 - Off-Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Four-time Helen Hayes Award winner Edward Gero portrays Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, offering audiences the opportunity to see his "lively performance" (Washington Post). When a bright, liberal, Harvard Law School graduate embarks on a nerve-wracking clerkship with the conservative Justice, she discovers him to be both an infuriating sparring partner and an unexpected mentor. How will their relationship affect one of the most incendiary cases ever to reach the nation's highest court?
