Description

The Shelton Theater presents Clifford Odets’ Golden Boy, co-directed by Jean and Matthew Shelton. It is a heartwrenching story of a young boxer torn between his musical gifts and the money he can make as a champion fighter. The play first appeared in the U.S, during the Great Depression and examines the price we pay when we choose materialistic needs over spiritual ones. Hernan Battiato, Nicole Slovenic, and Robert Nelson play the title roles.
