A Hollywood actor will be taking center stage in an upcoming performance in Huntington. 

The Marshall Artists Series and Guyan International welcome Ed Asner starring as FDR on Wednesday, January 30th at 7:30 p.m. at the Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center.

Ed Asner, recipient of seven Emmy Awards ("Mary Tyler Moore Show", "Lou Grant") and 16 nominations, five Golden Globe Awards, and member of the TV Academy Hall of Fame, will star in the solo performance drama, "FDR," based upon Dore Schary's Broadway hit "Sunrise at Campobello", which ran 70 weeks on Broadway.

FDR explores the life of one of America's best-loved presidents and the events and decisions that shaped a nation. This powerful play follows the iconic president as he reflects on his years in office, from inauguration to the trials of World War II.
