Following a celebrated run on Broadway and in Chicago, Beyond Glory, starring Stephen Lang, will perform for one night only at Culver Academies’ Eppley Auditorium on Tuesday, Nov. 18. The one-man show presents the stories of eight veterans from World War II, Korea and Vietnam, rendering firsthand accounts of valor that resulted in the nation’s highest military award, the Medal of Honor.
Adapted from Larry Smith’s stirring book of the same name, Beyond Glory reaches into the souls of audiences and keeps them spellbound from start to finish. The oral histories of these eight veterans are brought to life through Lang’s commanding performance. Lang, an award winning playwright and star of stage and screen, subtly moves through each man’s story with illusory magic that lights up the stage creating a truly memorable presentation.
Commended for film portrayals of Babe Ruth to Stonewall Jackson to Avatar’s Col. Miles Quaritch, Lang began his career on Broadway, receiving awards and brilliant reviews in such productions as Dustin Hoffman’s Death of a Salesman and as the original Col. Nathan Jessup in A Few Good Men.
But it is through Lang’s stage adaptation of Beyond Glory that he has reached his most memorable and most brilliant work to date.
