Box Office

“Strand writes lively, fluid dialogue...Scalia, portrayed with terrific verve and snappy humor by Edward Gero.”  – The New York Times

“He (Gero) lands the laughs, delivers the gravitas and at every turn makes you believe this tantalizing man knows and feels American law down to his very bones.”  – The Washington Post

When a bright, liberal law school graduate embarks on a nerve-wracking clerkship with Justice Antonin Scalia, she discovers him to be both an infuriating sparring partner and an unexpected mentor. The Originalist looks into the complexities of one of the most polarizing Supreme Court Justices of all times. This powerful work portrays the passionate people risking heart and soul to defend their interpretation of the truth, and the constitution.

Running time for this production is 95 minutes with no intermission.
