The Blue Heron Arts Center will stage a 25th anniversary revival of Tom Cole's Medal of Honor Rag beginning Jan. 29.
Cole's drama is based on a pivotal, life-changing therapy session that becomes "a duel of wits between a young Jewish psychiatrist and an African-American Vietnam veteran."
Medal of Honor Rag stars Thomas James O'Leary (The Phantom of the Opera, Absent Friends, The Boys in the Band), Reginald James (the upcoming Christopher Scott Cherot feature film "Box Marley") and Adam Brown.
The creative team comprises costume designer Robert Martin as well as two medical doctors, who are pursuing separate theatre careers at night: set and lighting designer is Dr. Roman Tatarowicz (OB/Gyn) and the show's director is Dr. Jim Pelegano (oncology). Tickets are $19. TDF vouchers are accepted. The Blue Heron Arts Center is located at 123 E. 24 St. For reservations and information call (212) 332 0027.
