Miami‑Dade Public Library System presents Theodore Roosevelt
– Theodore Roosevelt to be presented as a one‑man show by playwright and actor Derek Evans –
(Miami, FL – April 7, 2015) Come and meet the man Owen Wister called “The most American American who ever lived!” The Miami‑Dade Public Library will present a one‑man show on Theodore Roosevelt on Friday, May 22nd at 2 p.m., at Main Library’s auditorium, located at 101 West Flagler Street in Miami. This will be a free event and open to the public.
Theodore Roosevelt—“Teddy” to the world—was the face of America for three decades. Powerful, opinionated, intensely loyal and devoted to the ideal of a just, honorable, and muscular America, he stood for high ideals, and he never preached anything he didn’t practice. Theodore Roosevelt has been energetically brought back to life by Derek Evans in performances from the White House Visitor Center to grade school classrooms, museums and theaters across the United States.
This theatre performance is made possible by PMI Arts.
