Theater Review

"You couldn't change my mind if you talked for a hundred years," a character insists in Twelve Angry Men.

But minds were made to be changed, and that's exactly what happens in Reginald Rose's play. How and why it happens forms the action of this jury room drama, which got its start as a 1954 teleplay, was turned into a 1957 movie (starring Henry Fonda) and finally made its Broadway debut two years ago.

Twelve Angry Men continues through Nov. 5 at the Hippodrome Theatre, 12 N. Eutaw St. $27-$67. 410-547-SEAT or BroadwayAcrossAmerica.com
