Lee Stetson's John Muir presentation was outstanding. He is a delight to watch and listen to. We had 2nd row seats in the open seating theatre and it was like sitting in his living room. The first night was so good (focused on his disappointment with Hetch Hetchy decision) that we couldn't wait to come back the next night for... More

First night in the theater was a nice program about the buffalo soldiers. The next night I watched a John Muir presentation with Theodore Roosevelt. It was very entertaining to see how John reasoned with him about preserving Yosemite valley and the area. Lee Stetson was great! It was nice to chat with both of them for a while.

He was totally in the role of the great botanist and founding member of the Sierra Club. We went the second night where Lee gave a brief talk as John Muir and then had over an hour... More

Lee Stetson has been doing the John Muir historical presentation for over 30 years at Yosemite. He is a very gifted and knowledgeable historian/actor. His presentation at the Yosemite Theater (next to the Visitor Center) was one of the highlights of our trip to Yosemite. I felt like I was hearing and talking to John Muir. He is currently doing...

If you have seen the Ken Burns series on the National Parks, you may recognize Lee Stetson. We went to see this 1-man show from 7-8:30 pm (including a short intermission) with our 3 children ages 6, 11 & 15. The older two enjoyed the show, our youngest was tired after a day in the park and took a nap.... More

Lee Stetson has been performing one-man shows about John Muir for nearly 30 years. Not only is he a fine actor, he is a Muir scholar. As such, her really "becomes" John Muir on stage and give a show that is moving, inspiring, and educational. You may recognize him (or his voice) from his appearance as the voice of John... More
