The seven-time Emmy Award winner will perform at Governors State University on April 17.
To older generations, he’s known as Lou Grant from the Mary Tyler Moore Show. To youngsters, he may be a bit more recognizable as Carl Fredricksen from Pixar’s award-winning animation “UP.” But on April 17, 83-year-old actor Ed Asner will be performing the role as former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt at Governors State University Center for Performing Arts. “Asner as FDR” is a dramatic interpretation of FDR’s White House years, including the Depression, pre-World War II and the war years. It’s based off the original four-time Tony Award winning Broadway hit “Sunrise at Campobello.” The performance begins at 7 p.m. Tickets range from $15 to $55 for box seats. You can purchase them online.
