The American Soldier has performed at The Kennedy Center (2016 & 2019), Off-Broadway, Library of Congress, American Legion National Headquarters, Off and in 17 cities, and 12 states in countless theaters and art centers across the country for the past five years, for veterans and audiences. It has been nominated for an Amnesty International Award for theatre excellence, received 4 out of 5 stars at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and been featured in The Huffington Post, The Military Times, The Washington Post, Washington Times, DC Metro, US Veteran Magazine and Time Out, to name a few.
The American Soldier is based and inspired by real stories and letters written by veterans and their families from the American Revolution through the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. It reveals the struggles American soldiers face at war and their internal struggles to come back home. The show strives to help us understand how and why it is so difficult for men and women in the armed services to re-enter our civilian life when they come back home. Its goal is to honor our veterans and thank their families for their immense sacrifice to our country.
The American Soldier is the American story of how many men and women have put on and are willing to put on the uniform to fight, defend and give the ultimate sacrifice for what our country stands for.
A tribute to the American Soldier. Written and performed by Douglas Taurel.
