In a spell-binding tour de force, stage and screen star Stephen Lang, brings the remarkable stories of eight medal of honor recipients to the stage in a stunning one-man, multi-character show that will reach into your very soul.  Adapted from Larry Smith’s stirring book, Beyond Glory presents the powerful first-hand accounts of these veterans from World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, who’s courageous actions led them to be honored with nation’s highest military award.

The production has toured extensively, including Broadway and military bases around the world. Lang also gave a command performance on the floor of Congress with Medal of Honor recipient Senator Daniel Inouye of Hawaii in attendance.

Stephen Lang’s portrayal of the eight men takes the audience to a place where heroism and humility come together in a place beyond glory. With a backdrop of video screens which occasionally evoke the turmoil of combat, Lang subtly moves through each man’s story with a slight alteration of posture and vocal coloring to suggest a new personality. This illusory magic suggests the brilliance of his talent which lights up the stage with one of the most emotionally rich productions you will ever see.
