J. Edgar Hoover and the F.B.I.
 The Scandals and the Secrets
J. Edgar Hoover can be described as “wielding more power longer than any other man in American history.” For almost 50 years, Hoover’s influence went unchecked as he used his files to “manipulate presidents to maintain his directorship.”

A man who demanded loyalty, he was willing to resort to hidden microphones, wiretapping, stalking and surveillance to ensure his supremacy and eliminate his adversaries. How was Hoover connected to the Mob? Were the investigations of the deaths of JFK, Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy without flaw? What was some of the scandalous information contained in his massive files? What was the relationship between the Secret Service and the FBI? How did Hoover demonstrate his reliance on his own words, ”There’s something addictive about a secret.” In this one-woman presentation, using costume and visuals, Myrna Goldberger will detail the life of J. Edgar Hoover, his association with Clyde Tolson, his obsession with erotic literature, his personal hatreds and his use and misuse of the organization he “fathered” – The Federal Bureau of Investigation. Myrna’s objective is to provide “edutainment” for “Myrna’s Groupies.”
