Twelve Angry Men was originally produced for television, using a single set and good acting to tell a story of race, justice and reasonable doubt. This week the Roundabout Theatre Company brings the courtroom drama to Dallas' Majestic Theatre. This production boasts a great cast, with George Wendt as the Everyman juror No. 1—foreman of a jury deciding the fate of a young suspect on trial for murder—and Richard Thomas as the thoughtful juror No. 8, who tries to persuade the other 11 of the possibility of the defendant's innocence. The play starts at 8 p.m. Tuesday, with additional showings nightly through March 4. Tickets are $15 to $60. Call 214-631-2787, visit or swing by the Majestic Theatre box office, 542 Preston Royal Shopping Center. Visit for more info.
Feb. 27-March 4, 8 p.m.
