Voltaire (m), writer and philosopher.
“[Two for the Show] consists of two one-man shows. The first ‘George Bernard Shaw,’ presents the humor and showmanship of this eloquent, amusing and very astute playwright. The second, ‘Voltaire,’ displays the wit, charm and entertaining insights and satire of this remarkable dramatist-philosopher. Much of the material is apropos today because of the beliefs and superstitions which are still prevalent. And many of the conditions of society and government that aroused their indignation still exist in contemporary society.”
