Give ‘Em Hell, Harry

About the Show

When Harry Truman was unexpectedly thrust into the U.S. Presidency in 1945 he was ridiculed by both the press and the public as “the little man from Missouri”. Seven years later when he left office, he was hailed the world over as one of the great leaders of the 20th Century.


Now actor and former US Congressman Fred Grandy, well known from his years as Gopher on The Love Boat, offers a virtuoso turn as our 33rd President in a new production of Give Em Hell, Harry


The one-man-show tells the inspirational story of the feisty mule trader’s son who rose from obscurity to successfully guide our country through one of the most turbulent periods in American history. Using Truman’s own words, Samuel Gallu’s play reminds us that the gentle wit and plain-spoken wisdom of Harry Truman is even more relevant and engaging today than when it premiered in 1975.


Directed by Broadway’s Hunter Foster
