All Things Equal–The Life and Trials of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a new play by Tony winner Rupert Holmes (The Mystery of Edwin Drood), will launch a 16-city national tour October 5 in St. Petersburg, Florida, at the Free Fall Theatre.
The play, which presents an intimate portrayal of late Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg, will star Michelle Azar under the direction of Laley Lippard. Jean Kauffman is the standby.
The tour has dates scheduled through May 6, 2023, with a final stop in Jamestown, New York, at The Reg Lenna Center for the Arts.
“In creating this play about her richly-lived life and hard-fought struggles, I came to ever more deeply marvel at her strength, tenacity, sly wit, and compassion,” says Holmes. “Our play also reveals the love song that ran through her remarkable life and shares the music that was her giddy delight. All Things Equal offers each theatregoer the chance to better know this woman, her yearning for equality, and her love for this nation's precious institutions.”
The production will also have set design by Tom Hansen, lighting design by Dalton Hamilton, video projections design by Mike Billings, costumes by Devon Spencer, sound design by Tj O'Leary, props by Brenda Scott, casting by Mark Paladini, music supervision by Teressa Jennings, and stage management by Philip Gold.
Rita McKenzie is the associate producer.
