ABOUT THE SHOW
Hoosier Alonzo Fields spent two decades as Chief Butler at the White House, serving Presidents Hoover, Roosevelt, Truman and Eisenhower. A hit in theatres across the country, this funny, poignant, uplifting memoir returns to the IRT by popular demand. Looking Over the President’s Shoulder is based closely on Fields’ memoir My 21 Years in the White House and offers us not only an insider’s view of daily life in the presidential household, but also a deeply personal account of American politics and world events.

As an African-American and domestic servant during the first half of the 20th century, Alonzo Fields is not a typical historian. He offers a glimpse behind-the-scenes of power, revealing a fuller picture, and perhaps a deeper truth. Through Fields’ experience, we learn about presidents as individuals, and see the face behind many now-famous (or infamous) policies and headlines. We also learn of Fields’ search for respect as he recounts the civil rights decisions of each administration. Through Alonzo Fields, we are reminded of the value and strength of the individual’s voice – that every person counts and every story matters.
