Fellowship for Performing Arts presents “A Man for All Seasons” with Michael Countryman as Sir Thomas More at the Acorn Theatre, 410 W. 42nd St., NYC. The play, originally set to close Feb. 24, has been extended through March 3.
As Sir Thomas More refuses to recognize Henry VIII’s divorce and ascendancy as Supreme Head of the new Church of England, A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS reveals the risk of speaking truth to power and the clash that follows when fierce political will collides with deep moral conviction.
A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS stars Michael Countryman (Broadway: M. Butterfly, Six Degrees of Separation, TV: The Path) as Sir Thomas More, with Carolyn McCormick (Broadway: Equus, TV: Law and Order) as his wife, Lady Alice More. The cast also features John Ahlin (Broadway: Waiting for Godot, Journey’s End) and Olivier Award nominee Kevyn Morrow (Ragtime) as well as three-time Daytime Emmy nominee Trent Dawson, Drama Desk Award winner David McElwee (The Wayside Motor Inn), Todd Cerveris (Broadway: South Pacific, TV: Homeland), Kim N. Wong (The Hard Problem, TV: The Deuce), Sean Dugan (Broadway: Next Fall, TV: Smash) and Harry Bouvy (Wicked National Tour). A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS is directed by Christa Scott-Reed (Shadowlands), with scenic design by Steven C. Kemp (Cabaret), costume design by Theresa Squire (High Fidelity), lighting design by Aaron Porter (Songbird) and original music and sound design by Tony Award nominee John Gromada (The Screwtape Letters, The Trip to Bountiful).
