David McCullough has been widely acclaimed as a master of the art of narrative history, and a matchless writer. He is twice winner of the Pulitzer Prize, twice winner of the National Book Award, and has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nations highest civilian award.
Ed Wise has been a professional musician for over 50 years, and a piano and music theory teacher for 30 years. In addition to his many concerts, Mr. Wise has performed on the Tonight Show, the Letterman Show.
Mr. McCullough and Mr. Wise have graciously offered to reprise a special show they have performed at the White House, at the 100th anniversary celebration of the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge, at the New York Historical Society, and at the Truman Library in Independence, Missouri.
It all began in the 1980s, when Mr. McCullough learned that the Marthas Vineyard High School Library was about to lose its accreditation for lack of funds. He jumped in and decided to present a benefit concert. He asked his friend, Ed Wise to help him adapt Mornings on Horseback, about Theodore Roosevelt, into a stage presentation with music. It was so warmly received and gave them so much personal enjoyment to perform, that they began presenting it at many of Mr. McCullough's speaking engagements.
On February 21, 2017, the two men will reprise their magical evening at the Dock Street Theater, with stories about American history - punctuated by the music of George Gershwin and Scott Joplin.
