Pasadena Playhouse presents Michael J. Chepiga's Matter of Honor. The show replaces the originally scheduled On Golden Pond. Scott Schwartz directs this world premiere.
West Point Military Academy was established in 1802 to educate and inspire military leaders of the future with such notable graduates as Robert E. Lee in 1829, Douglas MacArthur in 1903 and Norman Schwarzkopf in 1956. The first African-American cadet Henry Flipper graduated from West Point in 1877. His roommate Johnson Whittaker, another African-American cadet, never had a chance. Matter of Honor tells the moving story of Whittaker's trials at West Point, which became the stuff of legend, remaking hidden practices at the venerable institution.
