Gary L. Anderson, the lauded national portrayer of Clarence Darrow, offers a fresh, raw portrait of the "Lion of the Courtroom," who defended John Scopes (Scopes Monkey Trial) and the teenage child-killers, Leopold and Loeb.

Passionate against the death penalty, Darrow saved 102 men, women and children from execution. Forever loyal to his motto "Lost causes are the only ones worth fighting for." Now, he stubbornly faces his two greatest opponents: disease and death.

Based on new and intimate details of his private life, Naked Darrow is an inspiring portrayal of the man, not the legand, in his final days. At 79, ill and struggling, with his mind slipping away, Darrow confronts his life - past and present, personal demons, famous and infamous cases, and the influential women he loved. For Darrow...the truth is no longer clear.

Please note theater is not handicap accessible.

"Gary Anderson's Clarence Darrow is in the same league as Holbrook's Twain." ... Eureka Times, CA

"Gary Anderson's one-man portrayal of Clarence Darrow reminds us why spectators lined up at dawn, why judges wept, why reporters howled, and why the name of Clarence Darrow still evokes in us the challenge that we can, that we must continue to fight oppression. I strongly recommend you give yourself this gift and see Gary Anderson." ... Phyllis Vine, author of "One Man's Castle: Clarence Darrow in Defense of the American Dream"

"Holds the audience spellbound. Don't miss this engaging and thought provoking performance!" ... San Leandro Times, CA
