Riding The Midnight Express With Billy Hayes Plays Limited Run Off-Broadway Beginning Jan. 22
22 Jan 2014
Billy Hayes, who wrote the best-selling novel "Midnight Express," upon which the Oscar-winning film of the same name was based, goes it solo at the St. Luke's Theatre beginning Jan. 22.
Directed by John Gould Rubin, Riding The Midnight Express With Billy Hayes will play the Off-Broadway venue through March 23. Opening is Feb. 5.
Barbara Ligeti produces.
"For the first time on the live stage," press notes state, "Hayes recounts the five years he spent in a Turkish prison and his brazen escape. He reveals aspects of his adventures never before told, elaborates on many instances portrayed in the film version, and corrects some of the plot-lines and scenes that were fictionalized for the movie – especially the actual, true story of his harrowing, white-knuckle escape."
