Hyde Park Theatre presents My Seasons with the Astros, Expos, and Phillies
In this encore of My Seasons with the Astros, Expos, and Phillies, HPT's Producing Artistic Director and award-winning actor/director Ken Webster explains his strange obsession with former major league catcher John Bateman.
Webster's Twitter feed started as a diary of the 1966 Houston Astros season as seen through the eyes of Webster's favorite player from childhood, the late John Bateman. The diary - part fact and part fiction, part baseball and part history and popular culture - has been featured in several stories by sportswriters. Webster describes how he became an amateur historian, chronicling his favorite player and the years 1966-1972.
Webster will also be answering questions about the show and about the Astros in in general, including this year's World Series and whether the 'stros are filthy cheaters. He'll also take questions about the current state of theater in Austin.
