Artists and Activities
Charles Lindbergh continues to intrigue us decades after his death and Steve Carroll’s riveting one-man play, Charles Lindbergh: The Lone Eagle, has mesmerized audiences all around the country with the fascinating story of this unique American icon. It is a captivating theatrical experience, containing rich insights into the life of this complicated and extraordinary man who forever changed the course of aviation. Steve Carroll has performed his compelling play for professional theatres, colleges, high schools, museums, historical societies, and aviation groups all over the U.S.
Soar with Lucky Lindy in the cockpit of the Spirit of St. Louis as he battles bad weather, exhaustion, and ghosts to emerge as the first pilot ever to fly nonstop from New York to Paris. Experience the crushing fame and invasive media attention that overwhelms this shy Minnesota country boy after he captures the world's imagination with his accomplishment. Eavesdrop on his awkward and comical courtship of the young and beautiful Anne Morrow, who would blossom into one of aviation’s first female pilots and a world-renowned author. Witness the heartbreak of their son’s kidnapping and murder, and the garish spectacle of the ensuing “Trial of the Century.”
Teacher’s guides and materials are available along with extensive bibliography. Educational and residency activities can include anything from a 1-2 hour discussion to a full workshop on Lindbergh’s role in aviation, heroism, anti-Semitism, and conservation. Also offered are extensive workshops on the process of researching and mounting a one-person show. Reeve Lindbergh, president of the Lindbergh Foundation, praised Mr. Carroll's play following a command performance at the 75th anniversary of the Paris flight and wrote, “I was indeed impressed by your performance, which I found moving and very thoughtful, with a fresh perspective on my father that contained much truth. You did get something of my father that was very real, and it meant a lot to me. It makes people think.”
