Byline: Ernie Pyle

From the E&R Department

The E&R Department is pleased to bring back Steve LaRocque, who will perform his one-man show Byline: Ernie Pyle on Tuesday, May 27, at 2 PM in Clubhouse II. Tickets at $5 per person go on sale in the E&R offices in both clubhouses at 8:30 am on Tuesday, April 15.

Byline: Ernie Pyle features actor Steve LaRocque as Ernie Pyle, recounting the major events of World War II in Pyle’s own words. The actor becomes the reporter, appalled at the tragic waste of war and the brutal conditions it imposes on the men who fight it, and personally committed to going back to it, again and again, until the end. Most of the people Pyle met on the front lines were men, but this version of the show includes the story of Mary Anne Sullivan, a nurse in the North African campaign.

Ernie Pyle was one of the first “embedded” reporters. As a correspondent during World War II for the Scripps-Howard newspapers, Pyle went to war with sailors and aviators, anti-aircraft gunners and mule packers, medical teams and combat engineers, and, above all, his beloved infantry, “the underdogs… without whom wars cannot be won.” Pyle covered the London Blitz, the North African campaign, the invasion of Sicily and bitter, mountain fighting in Italy, the Normandy invasion, and the glorious liberation of Paris. His now-famous columns chronicled the day-to-day stories of everyday American citizens who became warriors at a time of urgent need, and their triumphs and sacrifices that ultimately won the war.

This is a gripping, thought-provoking performance that you will not want to miss.
