With the advent of a young, attractive man as President, I
decided to write a musical about another young, attractive
man who captivated and still captivates the imagination of
Americans and people around the world-John Fitzgerald
Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States.
Kennedy is not just
about the man but about all those fascinating and colorful
personalities who peopled his life such as Lyndon Johnson,
Hubert Humphrey and Richard Nixon. Kennedy is also
about the Kennedy family starting foremost with his
beautiful yet vulnerable wife, Jackie; his loyal and
fiercely determined brother, Bobby; and his powerful and at
times domineering father, Joseph P. Kennedy.
Kennedy spans from 1953
where we meet a young Jackie Bouvier (the future Mrs.
Kennedy) to that fateful day of November 22, 1963. In
between are tender love songs such as “Where is My Love?”,
“A Wedding Vow”, and “You’re My Brother”; humorous songs
such as “You Can’t Beat Kennedy” and Nixon’s “Trust Me”; and
the signature “A New Frontier” which should bring audiences
to their feet.
Please feel free to write or call for any
additional information. Though I am wont to boast, I believe
Kennedy would make for an unforgettable theatrical
experience and would be the highlight of any company’s
