WED 9/08Documentary filmmakers Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen spent countless hours in courtrooms and prisons across the country conducting interviews with six former death row prisoners who were all discovered to be innocent of the crimes for which they were incarcerated. The Broward Center (201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale) presents the result of their interviews, a play called The Exonerated. Narrated by Lynn Redgrave and Montel Williams, The Exonerated relays in honest detail the story of America's botched justice system. These subjects range from Gary Gauger, a farmer who was accused of murdering his parents and whose hypothetical description of what he might have done was used against him as a confession, to Delbert Tibbs, a black political activist charged with rape and murder even though he didn't match the description given by one of the victims. The show starts at 8 p.m., and tickets cost $50. Call 954-462-0222.
