Thursday Night Lecture Series featuring Tom Lindley
July 15, 2021, 7 p.m.
Will Rogers Memorial Museum is launching a return of the Thursday Night Lecture Series! Lectures are scheduled for May 20, June 17, July 15, and September 16 in the museum theater. Programs will begin at 7 p.m. and will include time for questions and answers with speakers.
The program on July 15 will take a look at the man who returned Will Rogers to Broadway. Our speaker will be Tom Lindley, author and former newsman, who published To the Max: Max Weitzenhoffer’s Magical Trip from Oklahoma to New York and London—And Back (Full Circle Press, 2019).
Weitzenhoffer, a University of Oklahoma graduate, was the producer of the highly successful The Will Rogers Follies, which opened on Broadway and was followed by several national tours, performances worldwide, and productions in regional theaters with local casts.
Will Rogers Memorial Museum will feature The Will Rogers Follies on Friday, August 27, for the museum’s Night at the Movies.
