THE AMERICAN SOLDIER Honors Veterans and Paints War on Memorial Weekend in Austin, Texas

Douglas Taurel honors veterans and their families by performing his powerful and critically acclaimed  Off Broadway solo show THE AMERICAN SOLDIER at the EMMA S. BARRIENTOS MEXICAN AMERICAN CULTURAL CENTER in Austin, Texas on Memorial Weekend, May 25th, May 26th at 8pm & May 27th at 7pm 2017. 

Based on factual accounts and actual letters written by veterans and their family members from the American Revolution all the way through current day Afghanistan conflict. It honors and explores the internal struggles that veterans and their families face when returning home from 

combat.  THE AMERICAN SOLDIER received 4 stars at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, was nominated for International Amnesty Award for theatre excellence and recently performed at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

This Memorial weekend, in 55-minutes, enhanced by an interplay of sound and lights, Taurel enters into the personas of 14 veterans and their family members, telling their story of courage and sacrifice. THE AMERICAN SOLDIER exposes their flaws and their scars with both darkness and humor, and honors their incredible commitment for our freedoms. THE AMERICAN SOLDIER is not simply a play, but a journey through the American story.

Taurel explained, “This is a true work of passion for me and I deeply hope that audiences will go away with a deeper appreciation of the tremendous sacrifice our veterans and their families have made for our country.  I feel that the intense sacrifices that veterans and their families have made can never have enough awareness..”
