Oz executive producer and creator Tom Fontana and cast members of the HBO series (Lee Tergesen, Scott Winters, Kirk Acevedo, and muMs) perform onstage in The Day Jack London Got Pinched. This adaptation of London's The Road is presented for five performances only to benefit the American Globe Theatre. The play is set in 1894 and self-proclaimed hobo Jack Drake's wanderlust has taken him via "box-car" to Niagara Falls, where he lands in an Erie County penitentiary on a vagrancy charge. How much has the penal system changed in the last 100 years? How much has remained the same? Who better equipped to explain than Buffalo native Tom Fontana and his chain gang from Oswald State Penitentiary?
Tickets are $40 for the 9:00pm performances, which includes a drink after the show with the cast. Tickets for the 7:00pm Saturday and 3:00pm Sunday shows are $25.
