Join us on Friday, April 10, 2015, at Roosevelt University’s 70th Anniversary Gala, and watch two Emmy Award-winning actors bring the Roosevelts to life. Ed Asner and Loretta Swit will perform An Evening with the Roosevelts, two one-person shows that shed light on the events and decisions that shaped our nation, through the eyes of two of history’s most beloved figures.

In FDR, Asner will portray the iconic president as he reflects on his years in office, from inauguration to the trials of World War II. Swit stars in Eleanor, a show that shares a personal side of one of the most influential women of the 20th century.
