Two time Tony award-winners Brian Dennehy and Christopher Plummer will headline the cast as two attorneys in the revival of Inherit the Wind this March. The courtroom drama that was written by Jerome Lawrence and Robert Edwin Lee will open on Broadway at the Lyceum Theatre for a limited run. The play is by all accounts a fictitious story based on the 1925 Scopes “Monkey” trial.

The story pits two lawyers against each other as they battle it out in the courtroom. The trial they are arguing over is based on the real life conviction of John Thomas Scopes. Mr. Scopes was tried and convicted of teaching Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution to a high school science class. This was in direct contrast to a Tennessee state law that mandated the teaching of creationism, and forbade any theory that conflicted with the Biblical Conception of Divine Creation. This legendary drama was written over fifty years ago, but its themes of tolerance, religious beliefs and freedom of thought have all stood the test of time and are pertinent enough to hold true to the present day.

The production first appeared on Broadway in 1955 and a Hollywood film followed a few years later starring Spencer Tracy and Gene Kelly. The play was again featured in New York in 1996 with Charles Durning and George C. Scott in the roles of the two battling attorneys. This time around another two successful stage and film stars will take a crack at these challenging and fulfilling roles; Dennehy and Plummer. Dennehy is well known for many television movies and big screen films including the 1985 hit “Cocoon”. His last Broadway appearance was in 2003 when he starred in Long Days Journey Into Night as James Tyrone for which he won the Tony award for Leading Actor in a Play. He also found critical acclaim in 1999 when he won the Tony award for Best Actor in a Play for his performance in Death of a Salesman, a role he later reprised in the 2000 television adaptation of the play. Plummer is probably best known for playing Captain Georg von Trapp in the classic 1965 film “Sound of Music” opposite Julie Andrews. He has had many other film and stage performances to add to his resume including his Tony winning roles for Cyrano in 1973 and Barrymore in 1997. He last appeared on Broadway in 2004 as King Lear.

Inherit the Wind is a powerful piece that addresses some heavy issues and deals with some thought provoking material. It is also a perfect opportunity to experience two seasoned actors take the stage together in two very distinct and complex roles. This production is on a 16 week limited engagement and is scheduled to close in July of 2007.

Inherit The Wind Tickets are currently selling on average for 75.00 dollars with premium and sold out seating costing over 250.00 dollars. The Lyceum Theater has a seating capacity of 6,538 and sells out an average of 4,821 seats.
