News   Hartford Stage to Workshop Beaty's Resurrection Jan. 21
Hartford Stage will present a free staged reading of Daniel Beaty's new play, Resurrection, Jan. 21.

Oz Scott will direct the "unique blend of music, poetry, dance, comedy, and drama," as show notes describe, for the Connecticut company. Music for the 7:30 PM reading is composed by Daniel Bernard Roumain. "Resurrection is the story of six interconnected black men: a child scientist, a young man from the projects on his way to college, an ex-convict, a corporate executive, a health food store owner, and the Bishop of a mega-church, all of whom experience an unexpected phenomenon on the same evening that changes each of their lives forever," according to a press statement. 

Obie Award-winning playwright Daniel Beaty was recently named the Aetna American Voices Playwright-in-Residence at Hartford Stage for the 2007-2008 season. This work, expected to be presented in the fall of 2008, is being workshopped as part of that residency. His Emergence-SEE! played as the centerpiece of the Brand:NEW Fall Festival of New Work Nov. 4, 2007.

For tickets (free and open to the public on a first come, first-served basis) to Resurrection, at Hartford Stage, 50 Church Street in downtown Hartford, CT, call (860) 527-5151. For more information visit hartfordstage.org.
