The half-hour NY1 theatre show airs this weekend starting July 7 at 9:30 AM (ET). Check local listings for subsequent airings.
Lang — a Roundabout veteran of 1992's Hamlet at the Criterion Center — recently appeared in the workshop of Aaron Sorkin's Broadway-bound The Farnsworth Invention at La Jolla Playhouse. Other credits include Defiance, A Few Good Men, Death of a Salesman and The Speed of Darkness (for which he earned a Tony Award nomination). He also appeared in the films "Gettysburg" and "Gods and Generals."
Lang pens and stars in the New York premiere of the work that began previews May 25 and opened June 21 at Off-Broadway's Laura Pels Theatre. Robert Falls (Talk Radio) directs the Roundabout Theatre Company limited run scheduled through Aug. 19.
Theatrically adapted from the Larry Smith book "Beyond Glory: Medal of Honor Heroes in Their Own Words," Beyond Glory "presents the stories of eight veterans from World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, rendering first hand accounts of the actions which resulted in each of them receiving the nation's highest military award." The work made its world premiere in Arlington, VA, in 2004 as presented by Tribute Productions. The show then toured military installations across the globe and played in the United States Senate in 2005 as part of a partnership between the National Endowment for the Arts and the Department of Defense. Chicago's Goodman Theatre (where Falls is artistic director) most recently housed a limited run.
