TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Tallahassee Little Theatre is proudly presenting the father of all courtroom dramas, Twelve Angry Men, opening on February 23, 2012.
What seems like an open and shut murder case becomes a debate of prejudices and intrigue. Eleven of the twelve jurors walked into the jury deliberation room ready to return a guilty verdict without discussion. But one juror wants to examine the credibility of the evidence, despite the irrational objections and prejudices of some of the other jurors.
Twelve Angry Men is a riveting production that has been celebrated by a TV drama, a classic movie and a Broadway show. Now Tallahassee Little Theatre will explore the intersection of human nature and democracy as they present this powerful show.
Twelve Angry Men features many local talented actors including Byron Spires, Lloyd Thurber, Ken Catullo, Ty Wold, Kevin Edwards, Daniel Ortiz, Mike Herrin, Bob Myers, John Contarino, Bill Zuspan, Gabriel Ross, Johnathan Grabb, and J.B. Lovell. The show is a TLT directing debut for Anthony Mowad.
