Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz recently enjoyed a visit with “Harry Truman”, our nation’s 33rd President, as portrayed by Buffalo actor David Lundy. Lundy stars as President Truman in the one-man production of “Give ‘Em Hell Harry!”, appearing at Buffalo’s New Phoenix Theater for two weekends beginning October 20th. The play follows Truman as he reminisces with both humor and drama about (among other things) his early political life, his place in history, the atomic bomb and the end of WW II, and his interactions with numerous historical figures including Winston Churchill and Joseph McCarthy. Poloncarz and Lundy enjoyed a robust conversation on contemporary and historical events and politics.
“Give ‘Em Hell Harry!” opens on October 20th at 8 PM at the New Phoenix Theater, 95 Johnson Park, Buffalo and runs Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening for the last two weekends of the month. Tickets are available by calling the box office at 716-853-1443.
