Hudson Stage Company announces its Spring Mainstage production of Kunstler by noted playwright, Jeffrey Sweet, starring Jeff McCarthy with Keona Welch, directed by Annette O'Toole.
Toward the end of a long and controversial career, the famous radical activist lawyer William Kunstler faces an audience of law students, including one young woman who refuses to succumb to his charm and is determined to confront him. As he defends his legacy, Kunstler covers the gamut of famous trials including the Attica prison rioters, the American Indian Movement at Wounded Knee and the Chicago 7, the Long Island Railroad shooting and the rape of the Central Park jogger. The NYTimes once called Kunstler "the country's most controversial and perhaps its best known lawyer."
Running weekends only from Friday, April 26th, opening Saturday April 27th through May 11th.
