"Vietnam... through my lens "
Monday, Nov 11th / CoMMA / 7:30 PM

Stu proudly served in the U.S. Army from January 1968 to January 1970. Through much of 1969, he was a combat photographer/journalist with the 1st Infantry Division in Vietnam; it is that service which provided the impetus for this solo, stage performance.

This is a soldier’s story, told by an awfully good story teller. No blood and guts. No political statements that try to tell you why America’s involvement over there was right or wrong. What you get is simply a woven stream of memories and reflections . . . stories! Just one guy’s intensely personal perspective on the most significant period in his life. Share the odd path by which Stu ended up in Vietnam, some of his misadventures as a journalist and photographer, and (perhaps most importantly) how the experience has colored his life. Vietnam, it turns out, had tentacles that reached into the future.
,br> During the course of the show, his words are made even more vivid by video projections of some of his Vietnam photos. Those shots bring his memories . . . and the difficult period of the war . . . into focus, for you, the 21st century audience. His stories will touch your heart . . . and bring on a smile. And along the way, Stu’s stories . . . the pathos, the joy, the humor, the pride . . . may just give you pause to think about friendship, country, important people and moments in your life . . . things that matter, things that count, as we all stumble along and do what we can
