Description
Tony Award® nominee and stage and screen star Stephen Lang masterfully brings eight American veterans to life in this one-man tour-de-force. Lang renders first hand accounts of valor which resulted in their receiving our nation's highest military award - the Medal of Honor. Mature Subject Matter Stephen Lang, award winning playwright, stage and screen star, brings the stories of eight different men to the stage in a one-man show that will reach into your very soul and keep you thoroughly spellbound: Beyond Glory, adapted from Larry Smith's stirring book. Commended for film portrayals of Babe Ruth to Stonewall Jackson to AVATAR's Col. Quaritch, Lang began his career on Broadway and maintained a managing role at the Actor's Theatre. It is through Lang's stage adaptation of Beyond Glory that he has reached his most memorable, his most brilliant work. Beyond Glory enjoyed a celebrated run on Broadway and in Chicago's Goodman Theater; Lang is now taking it coast to coast. Beyond Glory presents the stories of eight veterans from World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, rendering first hand accounts of valor which resulted in the nation's highest military award, the Medal of Honor. As a tribute to fallen soldiers, Lang performed the show on military bases, and gave a command performance on the floor of Congress with Medal of Honor recipient Senator Daniel Inouye of Hawaii in attendance. The oral histories of these eight men are brought to life through Lang's commanding performance, with a backdrop of video screens which occasionally evoke the turmoil of combat. Lang subtly moves through each man's story with a slight alteration of posture and vocal coloring to suggest a new personality. This illusory magic suggests the magnitude of this performer, the brilliance of his talent that will light up your stage with one of the most memorable presentations you will ever have the honor of presenting.
