Bertolt Brecht’s A Man's A Man, starring Tony nominee Justin Vivian Bond and Gibson Frazier, begins performances January 10 at off-Broadway's Classic Stage Company. Directed by Brian Kulick, opening night is set for January 30.
A Man's A Man tells the story of Galy Gay, a simple man out shopping who, by the trickery of some soldiers, is turned into a soldier, enlisted into Her Majesty’s Armed Forces and, eventually, reassembled into a killing machine. The play is Brecht’s ode to the inhumanity of man.
In addition to Mx Bond and Frazier, the cast includes Martin Moran as Uriah Shelley, Jason Babinsky as Polly Baker, Bill Buell as Jeraiah Jip, Steven Skybell as Jesse Mahoney, Tony winner Stephen Spinella as Bloody Five, Ching Valdes-Aran as Mr. Wang and Allan K. Washington.
The production will feature new music by Grammy- and Tony-winning singer-songwriter Duncan Sheik.
