Stephen Lang's award-winning solo show Beyond Glory will play the Roundabout's Laura Pels Theatre, May 25-August 19; it will replace the previously announced production of Brian Friel's The Home Place. The production, to open officially on June 21, will be directed by Tony Award winner Robert Falls, who helmed the show's previous production at the Goodman Theatre.

Adapted from the book by Larry Smith, Beyond Glory presents the stories of eight veterans from World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, each of whom won the nation's highest military award, the Medal of Honor.

The show's creative team includes Tony Cisek (sets), David Woolard (costumes), Dan Covey (lighting), Cecil Averett (sound), John Boesche (projections), and Robert Kessler (original music). Falls is currently represented on the New York stage by Talk Radio and Dying City.

Lang received the Joseph Jefferson Award for his performance in Beyond Glory. His many New York stage credits include The Speed of Darkness, for which he received a Tony nomination, Hamlet, Defiance, A Few Good Men, and Falls' production of Death of a Salesman. He is currently on stage at the La Jolla Playhouse in Aaron Sorkin's The Farnsworth Invention.
