On Friday, April 9 at 9:15 a.m., Vermont Academy presents Jim Cooke's Cranky Yankees: All Together, Now in the Horowitz Performing Arts Hall on its Saxtons River campus.
Cooke is best known for "Calvin Coolidge: More Than Two Words", a one-man show that has changed popular perceptions and challenged scholarly misperceptions of Vermont's only elected president.
Cooke now combines this characterization with other one-man performances based mainly on New England characters, Daniel Webster and John Quincy Adams, joined by Ethan Allen, James Whitcomb Riley, Samuel Sewall, Harriet Beecher Stowe and Joseph P. Kennedy, to name but a few.
This lecture/performance features Jim?s cranky process of giving actuality to the past.
