Playwright, performer and former Logan resident James Arrington is bringing his 40th anniversary production of <em>Here’s Brother Brigham</em> to the Utah Theatre in Logan. Theatre manager Gary Griffin says the live production of the one-man show will be presented Thursday through Saturday, November 3-5, and it will probably be the last time local residents will be able to see it.
A retired Brigham Young University theater department professor, Arrington produced the show about Brigham Young’s life early in his theatrical career and he has performed it before many audiences throughout the years.
“It’s going to be played over three nights, November 3rd, 4th and 5th,” says Griffin. “This is something he has done for a lot of years. He has performed in front of more than 400,000 people.
“This will probably be the last time he’ll do this. He’s going to do it here then down in Provo for a few. But it will be the last time and he’s hanging up his hat and cane.”
A son of the late historian of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Leonard Arrington, James has produced several other productions depicting the lives of other Utah pioneers.
The performances will start at 7 p.m. each night at the Utah Theatre located at 18 West Center in Logan.
