Directed by Stan Mazin, the one-man show will officially open Off-Broadway July 27. Bix Barnaba stars as 33rd U.S. President Harry S. Truman. The play, according to press notes, "covers various milestones throughout Truman's life including his legendary encounters with the press."

In a statement actor Barnaba said, "Truman was an ordinary man who was thrust into the position of making extraordinary decisions – some that continue to affect our lives to this very day. Some men are overwhelmed in those circumstances but Mr. Truman grew to meet the challenge. His personal integrity sustained and strengthened him. He is as relevant today as he was 60 years ago."

Show times are Tuesdays at 7 PM, Wednesdays at 2 PM and Sundays at 5:30 PM.

St. Luke's Theatre is located in Manhattan at 308 West 46th Street. Tickets, priced $31.50 and $56.50, are available by calling (212) 239-6200 or by visiting www.telecharge.com.
