Meet John Doe
Tickets and Information
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Based on the classic 1941 film starring Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck, Meet John Doe follows plucky journalist Ann Mitchell, who loses her job in the middle of the Great Depression. Ann prints a phony letter from a "John Doe" who, protesting the state of society, promises to jump off the Brooklyn Bridge on Christmas Eve. Circulation goes through the roof and she convinces her editor to hire an out-of-work ballplayer, John Willoughby, to stand in while she ghost-writes the "John Doe" column. With her words and his down-home charm, John Doe quickly becomes a national sensation. As Ann, John and "John" tour the country, and when the paper's powerful owner reveals his true plans for John Doe, both Ann and John must confront the hoax they've created and decide what is best for their country.
