Randy Otto said he’s been in character as the former British Prime Minister for about 40 years. The Milwaukee native travels the globe as Churchill, speaking to everyone interested in history. The play was written, produced, directed, and performed by Otto.
The one-man, two-act play starts with Churchill describing his daily routine. The day starts with a glass of champagne. “A single glass of champagne imparts a feeling of exhilaration. The nerves are braced, the imagination is agreeably stirred, the wits become more nimble. A bottle produces a contrary effect,” Churchill quipped.
