Comedy/Drama
Runs Aug 13Sep 29, 2024

Stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning film in which a network TV news anchorman is plunged into despair when his ratings drop and he is fired.  He turns suicidal and threatens to kill himself live on air at an appointed time. Bizarrely, this announcement leads to a dramatic resurgence in popularity. Beale is reborn as “the mad prophet of the airwaves,” a man who channels the anger of the common man.  A nihilistic satire on the direction that television, and specifically news coverage, was headed in the Seventies.
