By Alexander Eisman SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) — The Syracuse Stage opened its doors for its first showings of “Twelve Angry Men” to the general public. The first performance was on October 11 at 7:30 p.m.
Director of Marketing for the Syracuse Stage Joseph Whelan said the audience for “Twelve Angry Men” can expect the production to address racism issues that remain relevant today.
“There was this kind of interesting conversation about race, which of course is exceedingly pertinent, sadly, in the country today, so it became a very interesting piece, a piece from the past that really speaks to today,” said Whelan.
There are several intriguing components to the play, but Whelan wouldn’t offer any spoilers. He hopes that viewers will come to the stage to find out for themselves.
“It takes place in one room, around one table, how do you animate that, how do you make that interesting, there is a solution which I’m not going to give away, but in the scenic design they’ve done something really cool, which allows you to see the scenes from different perspectives, ” said Whelan.
The play will run through October 27. Tickets are available online at syracusestage.org.
