About Beyond Glory
Award-winning stage and screen star Stephen Lang brings the stories of eight different Medal of Honor recipients to the stage in his exciting one-man show. Adapted from Larry Smith’s book, Beyond Glory will reach into your very soul and keep you thoroughly spellbound.

Beyond Glory presents the stories of eight veterans from World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, rendering first-hand accounts of valor which resulted in the nation’s highest military award, the Medal of Honor. The oral histories of these eight men are brought to life through Lang’s commanding performance.

Beyond Glory enjoyed a celebrated run on Broadway in 2007, after its initial production at Chicago’s Goodman Theater. Since then,Lang has performed the show on military bases, and gave a command performance on the floor of Congress with Medal of Honor recipient Senator Daniel Inouye of Hawaii in attendance. As a tribute to fallen soldiers,Lang is now taking it to various states for a limited run in October and November.

Additional performances of Beyond Glory will be held Saturday, November 14th at 3 and 8 pm.
