Quotes & Highlights

“Ed Asner, 81, not only is Franklin Delano Roosevelt — he is also the show’s director, looking properly presidential, filled with the passion and perseverance which made FDR such a grand and powerful president.” —_Pasadena Independent _


FDR explores the life of one of America’s best-loved presidents and the events and decisions that shaped a nation. This powerful play follows the iconic president as he reflects on his years in office, from inauguration to the trials of World War II. Ed Asner, recipient of seven Emmy Awards (Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant) and 16 nominations, five Golden Globe Awards, and member of the TV Academy Hall of Fame, stars in the solo performance drama, based upon Dore Schary’s Sunrise at Campobello, which ran for 70 weeks on Broadway.
