For the first time on stage, the hidden history of the Vietnam War that destroyed more than one president is dramatized at the Santa Monica Playhouse Sundays in the production “Pentagon Papers” through March 25.
President Richard Nixon referred to the Watergate break-in which eventually lead to his resignation as ‘silly’ and ‘incredible’ in grand jury transcripts made public in November 2011. J-Powers’s new play “Pentagon Papers” presents key passages from the recently declassified Pentagon Papers revealing the shocking secrets that led him to create a team of Watergate burglars and eventually to the self-destruction of his presidency. Admission: $19.50, $17 (students, teachers, seniors, members of the military), $15 (groups of eight or more). For tickets, call 310.394.9779 ext. 1 or visit santamonicaplayhouse.com.
