The American premiere of The Good and the True opens officially on August 3 at off-Broadway's DR2 Theatre. The Daniel Hrbek-helmed production stars Saul Reichlin and Hannah D. Scott, who, as previously announced, has stepped in for Isobel Pravda.
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.
Reichlin’s one man play Sholom Aleichem: Now You're Talking! has been performed in the West End, in New York and in several countries throughout Europe. Scott has appeared on stage previously in off-Broadway and regional productions including Butoh Electra, Unmanned, Barbarians and The Time of Your Life.
