Beyond Glory

Milwaukee

Stephen Lang, award winning playwright, stage and screen star, brings the stories of eight different men to the stage in a one-man show that will reach into your very soul and keep you thoroughly spellbound: Beyond Glory, adapted from Larry Smith’s stirring book. Commended for film portrayals of Babe Ruth to Stonewall Jackson to AVATAR’s Col. Quaritch, Lang began his career on Broadway and maintained a managing role at the Actor’s Theatre. It is through Lang’s stage adaptation of Beyond Glory that he has reached his most memorable, his most brilliant work. Beyond Glory enjoyed a celebrated run on Broadway and in Chicago’s Goodman Theater; Lang is now taking it coast to coast. Beyond Glory presents the stories of eight veterans from World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, rendering first hand accounts of valor which resulted in the nation’s highest military award, the Medal of Honor. As a tribute to fallen soldiers, Lang performed the show on military bases, and gave a command performance on the floor of Congress with Medal of Honor recipient Senator Daniel Inouye of Hawaii in attendance. A portion of all tickets purchased will be donated to The Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative. mkehomelessvets.org
