The warmth, wit, charm, and common sense of Will Rogers transformed him from a restless cowboy into the best-loved American of his day. He dominated every medium of his time – stage, screen, radio, newspapers, and personal appearances – and his homespun wisdom went straight to the nation’s heart. This dazzling musical casts Will’s story as a Ziegfeld Follies production and cleverly presents Will’s life by means of Ziegfeld’s showmanship , complete with glittering showgirls, rope tricks, show-stopping production numbers, and a paper moon. The Will Rogers Follies promises a night of pure entertainment with the greatest star this country has ever produced.
