A play written by Tony Award Winning playwright RUPERT HOLMES

Supreme Court Justice “RBG” welcomes a friend of the family to her cozy chambers to convey, over the course of ninety fascinating and often funny minutes, a sense of her life and its many trials: losing her mother the day before she graduated as valedictorian of her Brooklyn high school … being one of only nine young women studying law at Harvard while also raising a daughter and helping her husband battle cancer … fighting for women’s rights in the nineteen-seventies before condescending all-male courts … and taking courageous stands for human rights as a voice of reason amid a splintering and increasingly politicized Supreme Court. An evening with a great and compassionate icon of straight-thinking American justice emerges … an RBG who is not only “notorious” but victorious as she takes a stand for ordinary people facing the many challenges of a changing world. Bring your scrunchies, your hankies, your humor and your heart to this entertaining and uplifting event!

Review: “All Things Equal” A Big Success at Bay Street Theater

(Excerpted from Broadcasting Corp. dated November 7, 2022)
“The Bay Street Theater production of “ALL THINGS EQUAL,” is more than “The Life & Trials of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.” It is an important telling of powerful history of the American Justice system. Also, it is a wonderful success story; the audience loved the show. The opening night standing ovation for Michelle Azar as Justice Ginsburg was deserved.”

“…Azar’s performance is award-winning powerful. The audience was locked into her every word, sigh and emotion… Michelle Azar, through the words of Playwright Rupert Holmes, brings a genuine intensity of purpose to her role as Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Her talent and discipline open a window to whom Justice Ginsburg was. Ms. Azar weaves a web that spellbinds the audience via a nuance-filled detailed narrative style. This adds a certain gravitas to the words of Rupert Holmes. It lifts the show into a must be seen and experienced situation.” 

“…The long road to the rights of minorities is a checkered chess game of legal cases throughout our nation’s history. Voting rights for minorities, be it women, people of color or immigrants was the work of Justice Ginsburg’s life and career. This show highlights the details and moments within that struggle in a most thoughtful and entertaining way.”
