A Polish-American man who at 28 years of age, successfully assassinated President William McKinley at the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo, NY on August 31, 1901.

THE BALLADEER
Male | Tenor (C3-G4) | Lead | to look 18-25 years

Then along comes Karl, a handyman who has the job of removing a valuable mural but who keeps returning with offers of practical friendship.
