Q and Moriarty were two of Captain Picard's most dangerous adversaries, who had to be defeated via wit rather than strength. Now the actors who played those characters, John de Lancie and Daniel Davis, will appear in a play together: Arthur Miller's Resurrection Blues.
According to Playbill, the satire will run from March 20th through April 25th at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego. The production marks the west coast premiere of Resurrection Blues, which has its official opening on March 25th.
Mark Lamos is directing the play, in which a South American messianic figure threatens a military dictator who then has him captured and offers to sell the rights to his crucifixion to an American television broadcaster.
De Lancie is a longtime theatre veteran who recently directed a reading of The Waldorf Conference with several other Trek alumni among the cast. Davis, who had starred in The Nanny, was a Tony Award nominee for best actor in a featured role in the Broadway production of Wrong Mountain.
Captain Picard himself, Patrick Stewart, recently starred in a production of Miller's The Ride Down Mt. Morgan.
