The United States is spiraling out of control. There are mass protests on the streets of America’s most liberal cities. The US senate is controlled by an extremely conservative majority who represents a small fraction of the population. There are allegations of widespread voter fraud as groups of armed men take over polling places. White supremacist militias are labeled as patriots, while those fighting for racial justice and equality are labeled fanatics, radicals, and extremists. And finally, violence between the different political factions continues to escalate. I am not talking about the last four years under the Donald Trump presidency. I am talking about the United States, nearly 170 years ago. Mark Twain said that “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.” With everything happening right now, I cannot help but hear the rhyme from the 1850s when America almost destroyed itself in the battle over slavery. John Brown was one of the most important figures in the abolitionist movement. Today, many hold him up as a great hero, martyr, or profit. Others believe he was America’s first terrorist. But most agree that it was his actions which ignited the American Civil War. Alex Baggett is a professional actor, a writer, tour guide, and teacher. But most of all, Alex is a professional storyteller. Join Alex Baggett for an evening of triumph, terror, horror and even humor as he shares one of the most fascinating and misunderstood stories of American history. You wont want to miss this one-of-a-kind performance of John Brown’s Body. A one man show, by Alex Baggett
