Chicago Performance

Exciting review from our latest performance of FDR, starring Ed Asner, last week in Chicago at the Roosevelt University Auditorium Theatre!

Ed Asner was an absolute delight as Franklin Roosevelt. We were proud to present his one man show, FDR, in celebration of Roosevelt University’s 70th birthday. FDR’s grand-daughter and great grand-son were in the audience and they were very complimentary about Ed’s portrayal of their family’s patriarch. He displayed FDR’s warmth and humanity and brought that special Asner touch to a complex character familiar to us all. In addition, he was very open and accessible, happily greeting our patrons and even spending an hour in the classroom with our theatre students.

Of course, we already know that Ed is fantastic in his role as FDR—but it’s always great seeing others agree!
