Welcome back to our stage, Wester Joseph in " A ONE MAN TOUR DE FORCE". Wester was last seen as Malcolm X in THE MEETING. Wes is a local musician as well as a talented actor. Other theater credits include FLYIN'WEST, STICK FLY and 12 YEARS A SLAVE. LOOKING OVER THE PRESIDENT'S SHOULDER is told from the unique perspective of Alonzo Fields, the Chief Butler who served four U.S. presidents and their families: Herbert Hoover, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower. Famous guests through the years included Winston Churchhill, Marian Anderson, Errol Flynn and the king and queen of England. As Fields says in the play: "It was like being in the front row and watching the passing parade of history..." Fields is forced by the Depression to give up his dreams of becoming an opera singer and accept the job at the White House where he quickly was appointed Chief Butler. Set on the eve of his last day on the job, Fields reflects on his 21 years of service to his country with humor and pride. He was a man with a story to tell.
