Women Take On Twelve Angry Men

By Charlotte Robinson, August 30, 2018
Producer Lauren Class Schneider has announced that an all-star cast of leading Broadway women will lend their voices to a reading of the classic play Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose on September 16th at Theatre Row’s Acorn Theater in NYC. Schneider stated, “Rose wrote the original teleplay in1954, some 19 years before women could serve on juries in all 50 states. The female voices remind us how much change there’s been & how much more change is still needed. An all-female cast of this play, at this time, is relevant on so many levels. The play also makes a powerful statement for the value of civic involvement. It’s also exciting that seeing a play can motivate action.” The stellar cast currently includes Geneva Carr, Lynn Cohen, Jenn Colella, Ariana DeBose, Cady Huffman, Amber Iman, Chilina Kennedy, Caitlin Kinnunen, Jill Paice & Dale Soules with additional performers to be announced. Karen Azenberg, Pam Berlin, Sammi Cannold, Mary B. Robinson & Lynne Taylor-Corbett serve as Artistic Advisors for the reading. Following the staged reading on September 16th audience members, cast & staff will have the opportunity to update their voter registration in anticipation of the November 6th midterm elections. Information will also be given about how to increase voter registration & voter turnout. The reading will take place at 8P on Sunday, September 16th at Theatre Row’s Acorn Theater 410 W 42nd Street in NYC. A limited number of tickets are available for $60. Sponsors for the event include Broadway Fantasy Camp, New York New Works Theatre Festival, HMS Media & Bandbox Strategies.
