Tyrek Hyde will perform this one-man show about Alonzo Fields, who served as a White House chief butler for four U.S. presidents: Herbert Hoover, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower. Famous guests through the years included Winston Churchill, Marian Anderson, Errol Flynn and the king and queen of England. As Fields says in the play: “It was like being in the front row and watching the passing parade of history…” Set on the eve of his last day on the job, Fields reflects on his 21 years of service to his country with humor and pride.
