Roger Waters going off-Broadway in ‘The Exonerated'; touring ‘The Wall’ in Europe in 2013

Roger Waters

Given his penchant for large scale theatrics (both onstage and off) as a solo artist and as one of Pink Floyd‘s founding members, I guess it makes sense that Roger Waters will finally make the leap to the off-Broadway stage as a straight-up actor. Old Man Waters will be joining the cast of The Exonerated to act out the role of Gary Gauger at NYC’s Bleeker Street theater. He will be joining the cast for performances between November 27 — December 2 2012. That’s a wicked small, intimate theater so if you’ve ever wanted to see Rog “in the flesh” not holding a bass, now’s your chance. Roger’s presence as cast member is the only reason I’ve ever heard of the play, but after reading this New York Times review I’ve actually developed some interest in checking this thing out, with or without Roger Waters as cast member. From the CultureProject website:

2012 marks the 10th anniversary of Culture Project’s New York premiere of The Exonerated, a ground-breaking dramatization of the real-life stories of six individuals who were sentenced to death and later freed amidst overwhelming evidence of their innocence. It is a powerful play culled from interviews, letters, transcripts, case files and court records of individuals on death row. As timely as ever, The Exonerated is once again poised to increase visibility and to create a sense of urgency as part of a rising movement to restore justice to a system that has shown itself time and again to be deeply flawed. Since 1989, when the first DNA exoneration took place, 300 post-conviction DNA exonerations have been won in 36 states.

Tickets are currently available and, like I said, this theater is SMALL. When buying tix you can even choose your own seat which is pretty sweet.
