Calvin Coolidge in 1924



Who would have thought it? One of my favorite presidents, Calvin Coolidge, is the subject of a one-man theatrical show, Calvin Coolidge: More Than Two Words, and one that apparently is quite sympathetic to this woefully underrated American statesman and leader.

Those who can manage a trip to Swampscott, Massachusetts, on March 11 will have the great joy of seeing this fine American theatrically immortalized, while the rest of us will have to remain content to read the excellent article about the play and its author-performer and await the touring version starring some famous Hollywood actor, which alas will probably never happen.
