Opening night of "Hoover" at the Mandell Weiss Forum in La Jolla was a success...even with a couple of minor glitches, but that's what "page to stage" is all about; it's a work in progress...and it's having a very good start. Very creative and...continued

More Information


After stewing for 70 years in political disgrace (and presumed death), Herbert Hoover takes the stage in an interactive, rock-infused concert, to reclaim his legacy and save America in the process. Elvis’ classic ‘68 Comeback Special serves as inspiration for Hoover’s rock n’ roll resurrection. This time around he’s going to successfully drag us out of our economic Waterloo, come hell or high water. Award winning company Les Freres Corbusier celebrates the checkered legacy of one of our most vilified presidents in this hilarious new concert performance piece.
