Bay Street Theater has announced the cast and creative team of the 2022 Literature Live! production “All Things Equal: The Life and Trials of Ruth Bader Ginsburg,” written by Tony Award-winning playwright Rupert Holmes. The play opens Thursday, November 3, and runs through Sunday, November 27.

“All Things Equal” will be directed by Laley Lippard and stars Michelle Azar as the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Additional team members include producer, Scott Stander; technical supervisor, Brian Graham; and Ruth Bader Ginsburg standby Jean Kaufmann.

Michelle Azar is a seasoned actress with vast stage and screen experience, including appearances in “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “How To Get Away With Murder” and “Criminal Minds,” among many more. Onstage her one-woman show, “From Baghdad to Brooklyn,” continues to tour around the country after its sold-out premiere at the United Solo Festival in New York City.

Laley Lippard is an accomplished director who has directed and collaborated with countless nationally acclaimed theaters across the country, including the Steppenwolf Theatre Company and The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, among many others. She is the co-founder and co-executive producer of The Chicago Home Theater Festival.

Bay Street Theater is looking forward to having this terrific team collaborating together.

“I believe ‘All Things Equal: The Life and Trials of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’ will bring together the Bay Street audience and the glorious RBG in an enlightening and touching encounter with the remarkable person “behind the initials,” says playwright Rupert Holmes. “‘All Things Equal’ offers each theater-goer the chance better to know this woman, her yearning for equality, and her love for this nation’s precious institutions: Ruth... Justice... and the American way.”

Public performances of “All Things Equal: The Life and Trials of Ruth Bader Ginsburg,” will be offered Thursdays at 7 p.m., Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets start at $35 at baystreet.org or 631-725-9500.

Additional weekday performances are provided for free, to any school group who wishes to come. “Literature Live!” provides teachers with curriculum guides in advance to help with content and additional aspects of learning. Each student performance will be followed by a talkback and Q&A session with various members of the team and the audience.

Free admission will be offered to all school students, teachers, and administrators who may reserve weekday performances by calling the administrative office at 631-725-0818 or by emailing the director of education and community outreach, Allen O’Reilly at allen@baystreet.org. Bay Street Theater is on Long Wharf in Sag Harbor.
