RFK to Play Ars Nova with Cass as Kennedy

News   RFK to Play Ars Nova with Cass as Kennedy RFK, which enjoyed an extended run at Off-Broadway's The Culture Project earlier this year, will play two performances at the Ars Nova June 24 and 25.

Jack Holmes, who wrote the one-man play, performed the piece Off-Broadway. At the Ars Nova, the role of Senator Robert Francis Kennedy will be portrayed by Christopher Cass. Larry Moss, who helmed the Culture Project run, directs here as well. Show times are June 24 at 8 PM and June 25 at 3 PM. "By late summer 1964," reads RFK production notes, "Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, still in shock and consumed with grief over the assassination of his older brother, President John F. Kennedy, was at a crossroad in his life. The presidential election was approaching and President Lyndon Johnson finally called him to the White House to end months of speculation over whether or not he would be Johnson’s Vice Presidential running mate. The result of that meeting and the subsequent direction of RFK’s life are the focus of the play. Going backward and forward in time, we see Kennedy grow from husband to father to grieving brother to New York senator to outspoken critic of the war in Vietnam to Democratic Presidential candidate."

The Ars Nova is located in Manhattan at 511 West 54th Street. Tickets, priced at $20, are available by calling (212) 268-4444 or by visiting www.smarttix.com.
