GIVE ‘EM HELL, HARRY! - Written by Samuel Gallu, this faithful and humorous portrayal of President Harry S. Truman’s life and presidency spans his childhood, political apprenticeship as a judge in Jackson County, MO, years in the U.S. Senate and momentous two terms as President. Actor James Whitmore originated the role in 1975. Clifton Truman Daniel took up the mantle in October 2017, marking the first time in history that a U.S. President was portrayed onstage by a direct descendant, in this case, his oldest grandson.
