  • “The American Soldier” on Bannerman’s Island

    Writer and actor Douglas Taurel stars in this critically acclaimed Off-Broadway play. The play is based on factual accounts and actual letters written by both American Soldiers and their family members spanning over 200 years—from the American Revolution through the present day conflict in the Middle East.
