Supreme Court Justice “RBG” invites a favored granddaughter into her cozy chambers to convey to her, over the course of ninety fascinating and often humorous minutes a sense of her life and its many trials: losing her mother the day before she graduated as valedictorian of her Brooklyn high school … being one of only nine young women studying law at Harvard while also raising a daughter and helping her husband battle cancer … fighting for women’s rights in the seventies before all-male courts … and taking courageous stands for human rights as a voice of reason amid a splintering and increasingly politicized Supreme Court. An evening with a great and compassionate icon of straight-thinking American justice emerges an RBG who is not only “notorious” but victorious as she takes a stand for ordinary people facing the many challenges of a changing world.
Produced by Scott Stander and written by Rupert Holmes, the pair agreed that it would be crucial for a woman to direct the play, so that between the director and the actor portraying Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the creative team would be skewed toward insuring that a female perspective was put on the piece. Directed by Laley Lippard and starring Michelle Azar, the triumvirate of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s words, Lippard’s vision and Azar’s portrayal will bring the mind, heart and spirit of a great American before the court and into the spotlight once again.
