With Ames Adamson, John G. Williams, David Sitler, and Ben SterlingBased on real-life events, Butler by Richard Strand premieres in New York following an acclaimed world premiere run in New Jersey. This powerful comedic-drama was called "SPLENDID" by The New York Times and praised as "A VERY SIGNIFICANT PIECE OF THEATER, A TIMELESS EXPLORATION OF SOCIAL CONSCIENCE AND INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY" by BroadwayWorld.
When three escaped slaves show up at Fort Monroe seeking sanctuary, General Benjamin Butler is faced with an impossible moral dilemma--follow the letter of the law or make a game-changing move that could alter the course of U.S. history? "WHO KNEW A PLAY ABOUT HISTORY COULD BE SO MUCH FUN?" says the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.
