Give'em Hell Harry!, A Tribute to President Harry Truman

Apr 16, 2020 | 7:30 PM | Babka Black Box- Heritage Center

Give ’Em Hell Harry!, written by Samuel Gallu, is a faithful and often humorous portrayal of President Harry S. Truman’s life and presidency. It spans his childhood, his political apprenticeship as a judge in Jackson County, Missouri, his years in the US Senate, and his momentous two terms as president. Actor James Whitmore originated the role in 1975. Clifton Truman Daniel took up the mantle in October 2017, marking the first time in history a US president would be portrayed onstage by a direct descendant – in this case, his oldest grandson. www.gardnerartsnetwork.com

Yid Vicious, "Kick-Ass" Klezmer Band

Apr 18, 2020 | 7:30 PM | Babka Black Box- Heritage Center

Yid Vicious was formed in 1995 in Madison, Wisconsin, in order to ameliorate the woeful dearth of klezmer in America’s otherwise pleasant heartland. Klezmer is Yiddish folk music, music for dancing and celebrating, and Yid Vicious has been spreading its infectious, original blend of freylekh fun throughout the Midwest and beyond for over a decade. Rather than replicate a particular time and place, Yid Vicious celebrates the long-standing tradition of klezmorim and incorporates new musical ideas into an organic and ever-evolving art form. The band’s seven members blend their backgrounds in classical, jazz, and world music to create a klezmer experience that will electrify audiences of all ages and backgrounds. Their musical arsenal consists of clarinets, fiddle, horn, vocals, guitar, accordion, tuba, drums, and sometimes theremin. www.yidvicious.com
