Join Cinematters for an encore performance of A Standard of Change at Barking Legs Theater. In the last 18 months, Jim has performed his one-man play three times at Barking Legs, each time filling the house and leaving the audience wanting more.
“Every time I experience A Standard of Change, I get something new out of it. I will go see it whenever I can,” says Ginnie Sams who has been to all three Barking Legs shows.
Set in one evening in and around the famous Wisconsin Shack that inspired much of his writing, Aldo Leopold – A Standard of Change explores the influences and challenges that led Aldo Leopold to penning his widely popular book A Sand County Almanac.
As the lights come up, Aldo Leopold walks up the path. It has been 65 years since his death, and although his National Historic Landmark Shack is little changed, the landscape is hardly recognizable to him. Awaiting him are memories, surprises, challenges, and revelations. Leopold invites his audience to join him as he reacquaints himself with his beloved landscape, remembers influential friends and family, quotes from some of his most important writings, and ponders his legacy.
David Cook wrote in the Chattanooga Times Free Press that “Pfitzer…is magnificent. His performance stays with you, like an echo.
