The American premiere of The Good and the True has delayed preview performances owing to visa issues. The show will now begin this weekend or early next week at off-Broadway's DR2 Theatre. The Daniel Hrbek-helmed production stars Isobel Pravda and Saul Reichlin.
Written by Daniel and Tomas Hrbek and Lucie Kolouchova, and adapted as an English language version by Brian Daniels, the play intertwines the true testimonies of two extraordinary people—Czech athlete Milos Dobry and actress Hana Pravda. They both spent their working lives building suspense, knocking crowds into submission and drawing gasps and acclaim from spectators—but this pales in significance compared to their earlier lives enduring the indignities of incarceration and survival at the hands of occupied Czechoslovakia in the 1930s.
The Good and the True is still scheduled to officially open on August 3.
