“It’s an honor to direct Charles Fuller’s masterwork for audiences around the country,” Leon said. “Anyone who has seen Norm on the stage or screen knows that he is a remarkably powerful presence, a true force of nature, and I can’t wait to see what will happen when we have that power at the center of this play.”
“This is an incredibly powerful piece of theatre, an edge-of-your-seat murder mystery that deals with themes and issues in a most thought-provoking way,” added Ty Sutton, Dayton Live President & CEO. “Dayton Live has partnered with The Human Race Theatre Company to bring this acclaimed production to Dayton, the only Ohio stop on the tour. The only other midwestern cities on the 20-city North American tour are Chicago and Minneapolis.”
“The Human Race Theatre Company is thrilled to partner with Dayton Live to bring this award-winning production to town,” echoed Kappy Kilburn, Executive Director of the Human Race Theatre Company. “Through this collaboration, our audience gets to enjoy this stellar opportunity with many more in our community.”
The production will also feature the Broadway design team including Derek McLane (sets), Dede Ayite (costumes), Allen Lee Hughes (lights) and Dan Moses Schreier (sound).
