“Glenn Hopkins is an American Original. Names like Johnny Appleseed, Woody Guthrie, Will Geer, and Walt Whitman come to mind.”
“A familiar figure on the Los Angeles theatre scene, Glenn Hopkins has written over twenty plays... melodramatic and hilarious, brash and sensitive, frustrating yet ultimately rewarding....Hopkins writes from the heart, exploring human verities as well as human foibles. His integrity and purpose shine through...”
For the first time Playwright, Green Party activist, muck-raker, educator, Methodist and “Radical Faerie” Glenn Hopkins reveals the complexities of one who both needs much from, and offers much to society. Poems, research, articles, almost-poems, dreams, MRS. ROOSEVELT (a one-woman play), songs,, stories, politics, fervent prayer all come at the reader within the framework of a journal kept from Labor Day, 2004 to Easter Sunday, 2005.
Hopkins’ writing for the stage has been:
“outrageous...refreshing...intriguing...important...worthwhile.” ---The Daily Bruin
“infused with lyric imagery...billowing...lovely...fun...” ---The Hollywood Reporter
“gorged with ideas...admittedly wild...a literary volcano” ---Cleve Herman, KFWB
