Most Americans think two things about Herbert Hoover:
1. He was one of our worst Presidents.
2. He's dead.
This December, Hoover takes the stage to prove you wrong on both counts. Elvis' iconic 1968 “Comeback Special” serves as direct inspiration for Herbert's own interactive, badass concert resurrection. Our nation's 31st Commander-in-Chief is tanned, rested, and ready to rock your balls off... and just maybe save America in the process.
Award-winning downtown theater company Les Freres Corbusier wages an argument for one of our most incorrectly maligned leaders in this uproarious new concert performance piece declaring the road to economic recovery is paved with rockabilly.
