On Saturday, July 29, the Stokes County Arts Council in Danbury, will host distinguished Philadelphia area attorney, Dennis McAndrews, Esq., at their new Arts Place of Stokes venue, 502 N. Main St. in Danbury, for two performances of his self-written play entitled “If JFK Survived Dallas: Presidential Reflections of an Elder Statesman”. The play is presented at a monumental time being that 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of President John F. Kennedy – one of the most admired and criticized presidents during his short life. To this day, historians frequently speculate how the world might have been different if JFK lived to complete his presidency.
The play is filled with many historical insights and surprising predictions, leaving audiences wondering – What would our nation be like today had JFK survived? The play has been performed around the world to enthusiastic audiences in multiple venues, including in Ireland at the Kennedy Summer School, and across the East Coast at locations such as Georgetown University, Martha’s Vineyard, Villanova University, and in Texas to mark the 50th anniversary of the death of President Kennedy.
Mr. McAndrews is the Founder and Managing Partner of McAndrews Law Offices, P.C. – a nationally recognized 19-attorney firm concentrating on special education, estate planning, and the representation of individuals involved in higher education allegations of sexual and other types of misconduct. McAndrews, a former prosecutor, successfully pursued a conviction against the wealthiest murderer in American history, John E. Dupont, for the murder of Olympic gold medal wrestler, David Schultz. He is also a frequent commentator for the national news media involving legal and political issues, and recently offered daily commentary during the prosecution of Bill Cosby for CBS, NBC, the New York Times, NPR, the Los Angeles Times, USA Today, and many other news outlets.
