[ # ] Dean Cain is A Few Good Men
December 28th, 2006 under Stage, Whatever happened to...

Film and TV star Dean Cain may soon be headlining a tour of Aaron Sorkin’s military drama A Few Good Men. According to the AWA Touring Services website, the show would be presented as a "pre-Broadway tour" starring Cain, presented by Bill Kenwright and directed by David Esbjornson. No details have been confirmed. Esbjornson directed a successful West End production of the play last year; it starred Rob Lowe and John Barrowman. The tour would, according to AWA notes, offer "an epic production featuring a huge cast of over 20 actors…This is a riveting drama posing important and disturbing questions about the nature of power and the responsibility of those within that power…Dean Cain is scheduled to undertake the pivotal role of hotshot lawyer Daniel Kaffee." The original Broadway production of A Few Good Men opened at the Music Box Theatre on November 15th, 1989 to run for 497 performances. The play was directed by Don Scardino, and Sorkin ("Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip," "The West Wing") received the 1989 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding American Playwright. Sorkin’s latest play is The Farnsworth Invention, which will receive a workshop production at La Jolla Playhouse from Feb. 20-March 25.

I had no idea that Aaron Sorkin did Broadway before TV.
