Never has the Revolutionary War been so entertaining. Shaw stands “do or die” melodrama on its head, with a cast of unforgettable characters, from the deliciously urbane “Gentlemanly Johnny” Burgoyne, to the misguided romanticism of beautiful young Judith Anderson, to the Devil’s Disciple himself, a dashing young American hero who disdains heroism, even as he makes the ultimate sacrifice for honor and country. A co-production with The Smithsonian Associates and Voice of America.
