The Will Rogers Follies
GCP’s production of The Will Rogers Follies is on stage at Roger Rocka’s through March 12. This show-stopping, eye-popping, heart warming salute to an American icon will take you back to a time when things were – not so very different from today! It’s all in good fun as America’s beloved humorist shares his folksy wit and wisdom in a sensational musical revue.
A part-Cherokee cowboy from Oklahoma who never finished high school, Will Rogers went on to become a newspaper columnist, social commentator and the biggest, most popular, most highly paid star of every existing medium of his time – stage, screen, radio and print. Famed for saying “I never met a man I didn’t like,” the feeling was mutual; the world adored Will Rogers. Rogers’ good-natured ribbing of politicians, gangsters, celebrities – and himself – was laced with kindness, compassion and honesty. Rated PG.
A few Will Rogers quotes:
“It isn’t what we know that gives us trouble, it’s what we know that ain’t so.”
“Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.”
“Everything is changing. People are taking their comedians seriously and their politicians as a joke.”
“If there are no dogs in heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.”
“Never miss a good chance to shut up.”
