NAKED DARROW  

By Gary Anderson

WilsonvilleSTAGE presents NAKED DARROW,  June 2- June 17.   Naked Darrow is a provocative look at our most hated and revered attorney, Clarence Darrow, as his great mind slips away.

Darrow was best known for defending killers Leopold and Loeb and for defending the science teacher in the Monkey Trial. Now Darrow reveals his very private life, his trials, his personal demons and his jury-tampering charges. Personally reckless and professionally fearless, he now stubbornly faces his two greatest opponents: disease and death. Knowing the odds were against him to the end, he remained Clarence Darrow . . . an American Iconoclast.

 Gary L. Anderson has his work characterized in newspapers across the country as “Anderson’s Darrow is in the same league as Holbrook’s Mark Twain.” He is the CEO of the Clarence Darrow Foundation, and a member of the Screen Actors Guild. An award-winning stage actor, he has appeared in several television series and as Darrow in the documentary, Assassination: Idaho’s Trial of the Century airing annually on PBS. 

Praise for NAKED DARROW and Gary Anderson

Gary Anderson deserves his place in New York theatrical history, for his not-to-be-missed work of theater – Naked Darrow. This is a special play that will leave a lasting impression, one, like Darrow, that will not be easily forgotten..…                                                 Kelly Aliano, New York Theatre Wire

'Naked Darrow is a delight. It captures Darrow in all his depth and complexity, and makes his wisdom meaningful for today. There is no better performance about the Attorney for the Damned than Anderson’s Darrow.'…                                                             Edward Larson – Pulitzer Prize Winning author of: Summer for the Gods  

Anderson’s solo show, Naked Darrow, conjures a man brimming with accomplishment but harried by his own demons. This production focuses squarely on the aspects of Darrow that are most problematic. It’s a warts-and-all portrait compelling in its Complexity and its humanity…                                                                                                                                                                 Lisa Brock Minneapolis Star
