Rand’s “Night of January 16th” opens in New York
The Objectivist Theatre Company in New York City will stage a production of Ayn Rand’s famous Broadway hit, “Night of January 16th,” opening (appropriately) on January 16, 2004, and running through February 8th. The “gimmick” of this courtroom drama is that the jury is selected each night from the audience, and the verdict—innocent or guilty—will be determined by the “sense of life” of the jurors. Performances will run on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights at 8:00 p. m. at the Objectivist Community Center, 243 W. 38th Street (between 7th and 8th Avenues). Tickets are $15. For reservations, please send e-mail requests to
