An Evening with Aldo, a new one-man show by Jim Pfitzer, will be at the Chattanooga Theatre Center April 18, 19, 25 and 26 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10.
Review for An Evening with Aldo:
Aldo Leopold was arguably the most influential conservationist of the twentieth century, yet most people don't even know his name. With this new story, Jim Pfitzer aims to change that.
Set in one evening in and around the famous Wisconsin Shack that inspired and informed much of his writing, An Evening with Aldo explores the influences and challenges that led Aldo Leopold to pen his best-selling book A Sand County Almanac, while also looking forward to his influence today.
As the lights dim, Aldo Leopold walks up the path. It has been 64 years since his death and as many years since seeing his now historic Shack. Awaiting him are surprises, memories, and stories to be shared. Leopold invites his audience to join him as he reacquaints himself with this beloved landscape, remembers influential friends, and ponders his legacy.
Tickets available by calling the Chattanooga Theatre Centre box office at 267-8534. Anyone under 18 or with a valid student ID gets in for half price.
Thanks to sponsorship from the Leopold Education Project, Copies of A Sand County Almanac will be available before and after the show for $4.
The show will run approximately 50 minutes. Following a brief intermission during which wine and beer can be purchased, the audience is invited to join Jim for Q&A and discussion. These four shows are a workshop of a work-in-progress. Audience members are encouraged to attend multiple shows and offer their feedback. Discounts are available for those wishing to attend more than one night.
