review of 'Twelve Angry Men' from 2012-2013 season

Artistic Director Matt Logan and his top-flight cast fill a courtroom in the Historic Williamson County Courthouse with an electrifying look at jury deliberations following a 1950s murder trial. It’s about more than just reaching a verdict, of course – there are the universal and timeless struggles of reason versus prejudice, of idealism versus cynicism and of compassion versus cruelty. Studio Tenn’s artists get us to look beyond the courtroom foundations of Reginald Rose’s classic drama so that we examine ourselves and how we relate to others.
