Shake hands with the heartwarming humorist who spun a rope, poked fun at headlines and never met a man he didn’t like. The rags-to-riches story of America’s beloved stage, screen and radio star bursts to life as a Ziegfeld Follies-style extravaganza. Family, fame and fate are center stage in Will’s rise from obscurity to stardom. Along the way he’s arm-in-arm with vivacious showgirls and a slew of cowboys.

Be sure to join us Downtown at the Historic Academy of Music Theatre at the Academy Center of the Arts for this Tony Award-winning Best Musical that captures the American spirit at its up-tempo best!
