Steven Avery’s “Making a Murderer” lawyers are taking their show on the road.
Wisconsin attorneys Dean Strang and Jerry Buting announced Monday that they’re embarking on a national tour through the late spring and summer. The defense attorneys have become unlikely national celebrities for appearing in Netflix’s “Making a Murderer," the popular documentary series which follows the murder trial of Manitowoc resident Steven Avery in the death of Teresa Halbach.
Called “A Conversation on Justice,” the two defense attorneys will talk about the series, which has raised new questions about how the investigation into Halbach’s death was conducted, as well as broader issues about the criminal justice system.
There is no Madison date listed on the tour. But we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that Strang will take part in our April Cap Times Talks on the criminal justice system on April 12 at the High Noon Saloon. Tickets for that event are only $8 in advance and $10 at the door.
Compare that with the $45 plus fees that tickets are going for to see Strand and Buting in Milwaukee at the Riverside Theatre on March 18. The “Conversation on Justice” tour kicks off April 16 in Boston, and will bring the duo to theaters in 26 other cities in the U.S. and Canada through mid-August.
