Lee Marvin Be Thine Name The Prospect Theatre in Modesto has staged the world premiere of Nick Zagone's "Lee Marvin Be Thine Name." Zagone is a well respected playwrite and his works have played throughout the US, Europe, and Asia. The play itself is also well worth discussing as it has a very bizarre and thought provoking storyline about a priest who has lost his faith and makes the acquaintance of a most unlikely and odd character. While on assignment to give a dying man his last rights, Father Joe finds that the man is not only strange and cantankerous, but he also may or may not be the 60's movie icon Lee Marvin. We'll speak with Zagone and Jack Souza, who is not only playing Lee Marvin, but is also the founder of Prospect Theater.
