"The Wrong Man" is playing at the Skylight Theatre Company in Los Feliz Village.

Wrongful convictions—being convicted and imprisoned for a crime you didn't commit—is about as heartwrenching and dramatic as it gets in our judicial system. That makes it ripe for being the topic of a musical. The Wrong Man is an "underground" musical about a man in the wrong place at the wrong time. The story is actually about the man wrongly accused of the crime Johnny Cash sings about committing in his song "Folsom Prison Blues." Writer Ross Golan worked on this musical for about a decade and he stars in the show as well. Expect some quality tunes and a quality, thought-provoking story.
