'Twelve Angry Jurors' to Debut at West Orange H.S. on Oct. 31

WEST ORANGE, NJ - While 1950s television may not have been the techonological and visual marvel that it is today, it has undeniably been considered the breeding ground for some of the most dramatic and dynamic live television ever produced.  In 1954, Reginald Rose wrote a teleplay for the Studio One Anthology series on CBS called "Twelve Angry Men." It was rewritten for the stage in 1955, and became a popular motion picture in 1957.

The plot revolves around what 11 of 12 jurors consider to be an "open-and-shut" murder case.  What it becomes is a character study of the individuals that are called to form a cohesive group that will determine the life or death of a young man accused of murdering his father.

The West Orange High School Drama Department will perform their own version of Twelve Angry Men, renamed Twelve Angry Jurors, beginning on Thursday, Oct. 31, at the West Orange High School Auditorium, 51 Conforti Ave., at the Pleasant Valley Way entrance.

I went to a boxing match the other night and an overbooked flight broke out.

 

It may be a new twist on an old joke, but it is no laughing matter.  

 

OK, actually, it is.  I am sorry, but for anyone who has ever flown, the notion of a ringside seat on an airplane is a pretty entertaining thought.

Merchant of Venice Makes Memorable Opener at Shakespeare Theatre

MADISON, NJ – “The Merchant of Venice” has plenty to say about prejudice, suspision, money and cruelty.

Yet it has redeeming features as well, with Portia’s “quality of mercy” speech and Shylock’s insistence that Jews are individuals with feelings, thoughts and emotions as much as any other man or woman.  

Director Robert Cuccioli has gathered ...
