With a book by Howard L. Craft and Music Direction by Kevin Wilson, '69 Seasons explores one of the most fascinating periods in America's history. Through music, comedy, tumult and visits with icons of the time, audiences experience how the events of 1969 and the late 1960's affected the lives of average Americans. From "The Ed Sullivan Show" to Woodstock, with a James Brown groove and a piece of Janis Joplin's heart, visit Richard Nixon's oval office and Charles Manson's jail cell. Deploy from the home front to Vietnam and back with a new understanding which puts "The Star Spangled Banner" in a whole new perspective. '69 Seasons turns, turns and turns leaving audiences with perspectives and memories that take them to the moon and back again.
