Actor Brings Former War Correspondent to Life

Actor-playwright Rick Plummer is performing his play "Live From the Front: Byline, Ernie Pyle", this weekend at UT Tyler.

Ernie Pyle was one of the first American journalists to live day to day with the soldiers during World War II. He became beloved for his ability to tell about the struggles soldiers faced everyday during the war.

Plummer has been performing the one man play across the country. If you'd like to see the play in Tyler there are still a few seats available.

Plummer will perform the play Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and again Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Both performances will be held at the Braithwaite Recital Hall on the campus of UT Tyler. Both shows are free to the public.
