Following Oliver Thomas' rise-and-fall drama Reflections: A Man and His Time, starring and co-written by the former New Orleans City Council member who pleaded guilty to bribery, Anthony Bean Community Theater debuts the sequel Reflections 2 next month.
Bean and Thomas wrote the play, which also stars former New Orleans School Board President Gail Glapion and former City Council member Cynthia Willard-Lewis, who recently ran against incumbent James Gray for the District E seat in February's election. Thomas, Glapion and Willard-Lewis play themselves.
Reflections 2 "asks how hidden flaws can overwhelm an apparently honorable man, and asks if personal tragedy can correct the flaws," according to a theater release. "No easy answers, but a powerful look into the soul of a person who was once a New Orleans icon. What will you think?"
Performances are at Anthony Bean Community Theater (1333 S. Carrollton Ave., 504-862-75298) at 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday, April 11-27. (There is no performance on Easter, April 20.) Tickets are $20 general admission, $18.00 students and seniors.
