Broadway Producer Seeks A Few Good Men for Broadway Revival

And that Broadway producer is me!

I’m thrilled to confirm yesterday’s NY Times announcement that I am planning a revival of Aaron Sorkin’s A Few Good Men to be directed by David Esbjornson for Broadway for the upcoming season.

It’s been twenty years since Good Men graced the stage of The Music Box, and I couldn’t think of a better time to bring it back.  For me, there has to be a reason to do a revival.  The piece has to resonate differently now than it did when it premiered.  And as I was quoted in The Times, A Few Good Men asks the difficult question of how far we’re willing to let our military go to protect our freedom.  That’s never been more relevant than today, especially for a play that deals with Guantanamo Bay.  Add to that the fact that Aaron is willing to roll up his sleeves, get his pen dirty and do a little re-writing, and you have the recipe for a thrilling revival.

More news on Good Men soon…

    I saw this announcement yesterday, and thought, I hope Ken blogs about this soon!
    I saw a production of this in Dallas a few years ago, with Jensen Ackles and Lou Diamond Phillips. I’m interested to see what changes Aaron Sorkin will bring to the table to update it.
    So excited for this! Can’t wait to hear more.

    By the way, I notice that your links to Amazon display the used prices for the books rather than the new prices. Since you make your living at least somewhat through intellectual property, could you prehaps reconsider? After all, we writers need to make a living through our intellectual property too, and we don’t get a cent from sales of used books.

    This is great news, Ken. This one of the first plays I ever saw on Broadway during my first trip to New York back into 1989. I can’t wait to see what you do with it.

    Wonderful news. I had a great time directing it a decade ago and I agree, it is so topical. With Aaron willingly doing rewrites, I’m sure it will be a superb production. Looking forward to it.
