Hudson Stage Company presents a free, staged reading of Kunstler, a drama based on the career of radical lawyer William Kunstler, the famous defender of such clients as the “Chicago Seven.”
Jeff McCarthy (of Broadway and television fame) plays Kunstler, who toward the end of a long and controversial career faces an audience of law students, including one determined to confront him. Playwright Jeffrey Sweet has written or co-written about two dozen plays and musicals, including The Action Against Sol Schumann (a New York Times critic’s choice), The Value of Names (an LA Times critic’s choice) and American Enterprise (honored by the American Theatre Critics Association).

Actor Jeff McCarthy—whose Broadway resume includes Chicago (Billy Flynn), The Pirate Queen (Dubdhara), Beauty and the Beast (Beast), and many more—has also starred on stage in leading regional theatres and appeared on several popular TV shows. (Jeff is also the voice of the great Chuck Jones’ creation, Michigan J. Frog.)
Q&A with participating artists follows the performance, which is made possible through the generous support of the Croton Free Library and a grant from ArtsWestchester. Friday, June 8, 7:30 p.m.
