Are YOU a Veteran? Blue or Gold Star Family?

“Powerful one man show that honors our veterans and their families.” - Broadway World

The American Soldier is a solo show based on letters written by veterans and their families from the American Revolution through current day Iraq and Afghanistan wars. It help us understand why it is so difficult for our veterans to come home after experiencing combat, and honors the incredible sacrifices made by our veterans and their families. 

It has performed at the Kennedy Center, Off Broadway, Library of Congress, The American Legion’s National Headquarters, New York's Federal Reserve, and across the country for over 10,000 audiences and veterans.
