'69 Seasons
’69 Seasons explores one of the most fascinating years in America’s history. Through music, comedy, and visits with icons of the time, audiences experience how the events of 1969 affected the lives of three average Americans: a photo-journalist (Serena Ebhardt), torn between two loves and on the biggest assignment of her life; an army sergeant (David zum Brunnen) who always wanted to be in the military, but finds himself lost and in doubt as his platoon prepares for bloody battle in Vietnam; a young African-American woman (Rasool Jahan), who confronts racism, sexism, and alienation as she journeys from her home in the south to Chicago in search of what her small town roots cannot offer.
