 A Few Good Men

This Broadway hit about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial.

First set in the fabulous sixties – a time when we were listening to Elvis and the Beatles, but were also dancing to the new beat of groups like The Supremes and The Temptations – this show takes us to the arrival of disco, though the word is never used. The play is not just about the singing, dancing, and performing, but is also about the behind-the-scenes reality of the entertainment industry. The play deals with a musical                                                                                                          contribution of such importance that only now –                                                                                                                    decades later – are we beginning to understand.
