Originally posted March 7:

David Canary (ex-Adam/Stuart) will soon be seen live on stage in George Street Playhouse’s production of “Twelve Angry Men.” The former “All My Children” actor will replace Jack Klugman (“The Odd Couple”), who dropped out due to health reasons.

Canary will play one of the jurors who must decide the fate of an inner-city youth charged with the murder of his father. Things get heated when one juror convinces the others that the case isn’t as open and shut as previously thought. Canary will be joined by fellow soap stars John Bolger (Prescott Floyd, “General Hospital”) and James Rebhorn (ex-Angus, “As the World Turns”).

The George Street Playhouse is located at 9 Livingston Avenue in downtown New Brunswick, NJ. “Twelve Angry Men” will run from March 13 – April 8. Call (732) 246 – 7717 for more information.
