Stephen Lang in Beyond Glory

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.

“Mr. Lang’s one-man play is no simple-minded piece of flag-waving.  It is an unsparingly direct portrait of men at war, pushed into narrow corners and faced with hard choices. It is also one of the richest, most complex pieces of acting I’ve seen in my theatergoing life” – Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal

“Adapted by Mr. Lang from a book by the journalist Larry Smith containing the oral histories of veterans of several wars, Beyond Glory allows the voices of servicemen to be heard without the filter of the conventions of drama or the prerogatives of deadline-driven journalism. Its sobriety, simplicity and lack of histrionics are the show’s signal strengths.” – Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

”What makes a reluctant warrior – a man able to kill for his country and come out a hero?
It’s a question that gets answered with remarkable poignancy in Beyond Glory, Stephen Lang’s stirring examination of the lives of eight men who received the Medal of Honor for their bravery in World War II, Korea and Vietnam.  Lang, who adapted the evening from the book Beyond Glory by Larry Smith, lets these military men speak for themselves in this spare yet emotional 80-minute evening of theatre.” – Michael Kuchwara, Associated Press

“Recipients of the Medal of Honor, each of these men went above and beyond the call of duty to a place where bravery and humility meet. In a stunning tour de force performance, actor Stephen Lang leads us on a journey through WWII, Korea and Vietnam, taking us to a realm beyond.” – Broadway.com

“Stephen Lang has always had that fanatical glint in his eye… Inasmuch as he is the sole actor [in Beyond Glory] the glint gets to occupy the stage unchallenged for 80 heroic minutes [as he presents] eight heroes who survived three wars (in Europe, Korea, and Vietnam) and represent different ethnic groups, social strata, and regions.  Ages and accents also differ from one hero to the next. Lang manages all this impeccably, finding both the differences and the similarities among these men. He has idiosyncratic readings that fall compellingly into place; dynamic range and, where needed, speed of delivery that are enormous; also gestures and facial expressions that are arrestingly idiomatic.” – John Simon, Bloomberg

Ring of Fire – The Music of Johnny Cash

Stories of faith, family, passion, redemption, and humor set the stage ablaze in this new national tour of Ring of Fire—The Music of Johnny Cash.

Touching on the life and times of one of the world’s most legendary musical artists, Johnny Cash, the musical revue Ring of Fire  is considered  one of the best “jukebox musicals” of our time.   Although Cash himself is never impersonated, Ring of Fire features a company of  performers that will  guide you on a journey through Cash’s storied life and celebrated music, from the cotton fields of Arkansas to the Grand Ole Opry.  Ring of Fire features more than 35 of his hit songs from his long career including I Walk the Line, Jackson, If I Were A Carpenter, I’ve Been Everywhere, Folsom Prison blues, A Boy Named Sue, his final hit, Daddy Sang Bass and the title track Ring of Fire. With smashing medleys and bounce in its guitar-driven energy, this show will have you stompin’ your feet and asking for more.

Cash is primarily remembered as a country music artist, however his style spanned from gospel to folk, rock to blues, and country in between.  Both critically and audience acclaimed, this show  has been bringing audiences to their feet at large and small theaters around the country.  The New York  Post calls it “Effective, funny and imaginatively presented,” “Ring of Fire is HOT!” declares Variety.  “It’s touching and exuberant,” says the Associated Press.

RING OF FIRE-The Music of Johnny Cash is created by Richard Maltby, Jr. and conceived by William Meade with orchestrations by Steven Bishop and Jeff Lisenby. Ring of Fire was originally produced on Broadway by William Meade, CTM Productions, and James B. Freydberg.

In developing the creative vision for the show, Maltby and Meade felt that although we do not dramatize Johnny Cash’s life, it was important, by the end of the show that the audience felt that they have spent the evening in the presence of an extraordinary and real man.  Johnny wrote and sang about the lives we lead, regardless of where we lead them.  Maltby states, “if , watching this show, you feel you are being drawn back to your roots, it’s not accidental.  I hope, as we bring  to life these wonderful songs,  we will touch your heart, mind and soul as well, and take you back to part of your life you may want to return turn to.”
