WAITING FOR LEFTY

Genre: Drama
by Clifford Odets. Directed by Reesa Graham & Brandon Walker

Inspired by the 1934 Taxi Strike, this powerfully moving classic has become one of the most important plays of the modern American theater.  Set in the Depression era and dealing with the cynical exploitation of the working classes, Lefty Costello leads a group of disgruntled cabbies to fight for the rights they deserve.  WAITING FOR LEFTY is every bit as significant now as it was 75 years ago as new generations are confronted with the same fears and the same problems--and yet are still waiting on the world to change.

Featuring Margret Avery, David Arthur Bachrach*, Thomas Beaudoin, Steven Beckingham*, Christoper Bischoff, Jon Dalin, John Gazzale, John Greenleaf*, Joshua Everett Johnson, Norah Elise Johnson, Ned Lynch, Tyler Moss*, Dothan Negrin, Adam Reich*, Anna Marie Sell*, Bonnie Singer, Nick Velkov*, Brandon Walker*, Jamie Watson*, and Joseph Mancuso as LEFTY COSTELLO.
