Denver can't get enough of James O'Hagan Murphy's portrayal of Robert F. Kennedy. The Vintage Theatre production directed by Terry Dodd is back again, this time at Littleton's Town Hall. If you haven't seen the acclaimed one-man show, now's your chance. And if $25 is a little steep for your pocketbook, take your chances and vie for one of ten $10 rush seats Town Hall offers one hour before every performance.
