Russ Widdall as Robert F. Kennedy

October 31 - November 24, 2013
The Adrienne Theatre Second Stage
2030 Sansom Street, Philadelphia

A historically accurate solo performance which biographies the last 4 years of politician Robert F. Kennedy's life, from 1964 to 1968, and features music, film and footage from the era. Take a trip back to the 1960s and re-live Camelot, or become familiar with one of the best political essayists of our time, who used his time in public service "to seek a newer world."

"Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation."
-- Robert F. Kennedy
"At the performance I attended, several older audience members left the show wiping away tears. If that's not a resonant endorsement of Russ Widdall's Kennedy-style charisma, I don't know what is."— Philadelphia Inquirer, November 5, 2013

"Russ Widdall's portrayal of a man trying to honestly change the world for the better is convincing and, of course, tragic without an awareness of its tragedy."— The Washington Post, July 16, 2013
