Three prominent Americans debate the merits of unchecked immigration, national security, and civil rights. While it sounds like a contemporary, made-for-TV event, this confrontation takes place in 1799, with three of America's Founding Fathers as participants: Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, and Aaron Burr. Legendary radio dramatist Norman Corwin created this imagined discussion from the participants' actual writings - proving that when it comes to politics, some things never change.
An L.A. Theatre Works full cast performance featuring:
JD Cullum as Aaron Burr
Gregory Harrison as Thomas Jefferson/Mr. Pendleton
Henri Lubatti as Pickering/others
Brian Tichnell as Alexander Hamilton/Barnaby
Directed by Alexis Jacknow

Norman Corwin Hits another Home Run
This play is wonderful, If you have not listened to Norman Corwin you should he is one of the finest writters in the history of radio. you can trust that he is factual and not making things up for a political purposes. The Rivalry about the Lincoln Douglas debates is one of the best plays I have ever listened to, so give this one a try you will not be sorry.
