We got to the theater quite early. Free street parking after 6pm. You may want to arrive just minutes after 6 to get a spot on Colorado. We parked on a side street about 5:30 - it was also a ONE HOUR PARKING UNTIL. We got there so early we went to see a movie across the street. The play was SO MUCH BETTER than the movie! Lot's of dining options nearby.

Description

By Reginald Rose 

Directed by Sheldon Epps

Running time is two hours, including one 15-minute intermission. 

First created as a 1954 teleplay for the Studio One anthology television series, Twelve Angry Men aired as a CBS live production on September 20, 1954. The following year, it was adapted by Rose as a stage play. In 1957 it was rewritten again as a feature film and directed by Sidney Lumet.  Starring Henry Fonda, the film received three Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture. Over the years, the play has received several noted revivals including a 2004 Broadway production starring Boyd Gaines and Philip Bosco and a 2007 U.S. national tour starring George Wendt and Richard Thomas. And in 1997, Twelve Angry Men returned to the small screen in a new adaptation directed by William Friedkin, which included some modernizations to the script, and a cast led by George C. Scott and James Gandolfini.
