An incredible cast of talented New York women will lend their impassioned voices to a reading of the classic play, “Twelve Angry Men” by Reginald Rose, as part of a nationwide initiative called 12,000 Voices. During the weekend of April 5-8, 2019, women on stages across the country will read the classic play, which demonstrates the power one person can have when they speak with conviction in our judicial system.
