GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Loretta Swit's star-making role came within two years of moving to the West Coast when she inherited Sally Kellerman's vitriolic "Hot Lips" Houlihan movie character for the TV series version of "M*A*S*H" (1972).
She stayed with the show the entire eleven seasons and was Emmy-nominated every season the show was on the air (except the first). She has continued to perform a variety of roles on stage and screen.
Swit's latest role has brought her to the Twin Cities for a special performance as the iconic Eleanor Roosevelt.
Minnesota Public Radio presents Loretta Swit in Eleanor: Her Secret Journey at The Fitzgerald Theater on Saturday, September 8th, at 7:00 p.m.
Loretta Swit in an engaging and educational theatrical event following the years after World War I, as recalled by Mrs. Roosevelt looking back from 1945. It's an incredibly personalized, intimate portrait of the historic woman and the many challenges that surrounded her.
One night only in the Twin Cities.
