The all-star ensemble spans the history of The American Century Theater. It includes Craig Miller (most recently seen in Bang the Drum Slowly)) in the role of Judge Haywood, played in the film by Spencer Tracy; Bruce Alan Rauscher as Colonel Parker, the prosecutor (Rauscher was also the prosecutor in The Andersonville Trial, receiving a Helen Hayes nomination for his performance); Michael Replogle (the heroic Juror 8 in TACT’s very first production, Twelve Angry Men) as defendant Justice Ernst Janning; and Steve Lebens and Mary Beth Luckenbaugh (most recently a stand-out couple in I Do! I Do! ) in the pivotal roles played in the film by Maximilian Schell and Judy Garland, both of whom earned Oscar nominations.
