The AlphaNYC Theater Company presents a female version of the classic tale about 12 jurors deliberating a case that turns out to be more complicated than it at first seems. More…
A 19-year-old boy has just been tried for the fatal stabbing of his father. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken into the bleak deliberation room. But then one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. The proceedings become personal, with each juror revealing her own character as the various testimonies are reexamined and the murder is reenacted. Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become twelve angry women.

Don't see it if If you like a more racially diversified cast.I thought that it would have played out better with a more cultural cast.
See it if you like intelligent plays that are still relevant today and you're curious about how this classic piece would work with an all-woman cast
Don't see it if you have in mind the great acting from the 1957 Lumet film or another production
See it if For those who can appreciate the different personalities and how they affect the outcome of the story. Great characters.
Don't see it if Not for those who cannot make the most from the characters. This play relies on its characters for the entire performance.
See it if you are a fan of the original Twelve Angry Men movie or the Twelve Angry Women television movie. Entertaining, but not masterful.
Don't see it if you are looking for a play with super strong performances or for something super entertaining.
