John Williams and Teddy Roosevelt live on stage, October 22 at Classic Cinemas Tivoli Theatre in Downers Grove


This won’t be the first time John Williams and WGN Radio have invited Teddy Roosevelt to share his stories and insight with us.  But it may be the best!  If ever Chicago and Illinois and the USA needed someone who is good, smart, solid, dependable, independent, reliable, honest, candid, funny,  well-read, rough ridin’, shootin’, tootin’- okay, you get the idea – it’s now.  The stories you will hear are true, heartfelt, sometimes hilarious and hard to believe.  And the insight will be important.

So join us again, or for the first time, at TR to the Rescue – Again! with John Williams sponsored by Joint Relief Institute and by Jerry Haggerty Chevrolet.
