Hey, Hey, LBJ…,” by journalist-actor David Kleinberg, traces his year as a combat correspondent for the Army’s 25th Infantry Division at Cu Chi, Vietnam. Kleinberg skeptically supports the war at first, but his doubts crystallize as his tour of duty draws on, culminating in an event that sears his life personally and changes his views altogether.Added to the calendar on Wednesday May 13th, 2015 11:39 AM
This powerful, poignant drama about the most divisive foreign war in America’s history raises important questions about US conflicts then and since. The performance will be followed by a question and answer session with the artist and freewheeling public discussion.
David Kleinberg initially served as a reporter in the field in Vietnam and later edited the division newspaper. He was awarded the bronze star for his service. In civilian life, after a successful career as correspondent for the San Francisco Chronicle, he turned to stand-up comedy and solo theater. As a comedian, he has worked with the late Robin Williams, Dana Carvey, Sinbad and Richard Lewis.
