New City Stage Company began previews of the Philadelphia premiere of "RFK" by Jack Holmes on Wednesday, October 3 and the show has been selling out ever since. Arguably the highest rated play being performed in the greater Philadelphia area at this time, it has received rave reviews and 4 performances have been added in November as part of their community outreach program.
New City Stage Company will present the show as part of the Capital Fringe Festival, July 11 - 28, 2013, in Washington, D.C.
"RFK" begins in 1964 when President Johnson decided not to ask Senator Kennedy to be his running mate up until RFK’s untimely assassination during the 1968 presidential election. It also includes background information on his personal life as well as his relationships with brother President John F. Kennedy, sister-in-law Jacqueline Kennedy, Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. and FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.
This historically accurate play features music and film footage from the era -- all compiled exclusively by New City Stage Company for this new production.
Film and television actor Russ Widdall, of HBO's "The Wire," portrays Robert F. Kennedy in this one-man tour de force show.
