About This Show

The American Soldier is based on real stories and letters written by veterans and their families from the American Revolution through our current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. It reveals the struggles American soldiers face at war and their internal struggles coming back home. It honors our veterans and their families, and gives a sincere appreciation for the immense sacrifice all our veterans and families have made throughout our nation’s history.

It’s an American story.

The American Soldier has performed at The Kennedy Center for Performing Arts (2016 & 2019), Off-Broadway (2015 & 2016), Library of Congress, American Legion National headquarters and toured in 17 cities and 12 states in countless theaters and art center across the country for the past five years for veterans and audiences. It has been nominated for an Amnesty International Award for theatre excellence and received 4 out of 5 stars at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland, and out of 3,500 shows, it was short listed in the top 100 plays to see at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland. It has also been featured in US Veterans Magazine, The Huffington Post, The Military Times, The Washington Post, Washington Times, DC Metro, Military Times, Time Out, and Officers Association of America to name a few.

Taurel’s television and film credits include Mr. Robot, The Affair, The Americans, Blue Bloods, Person of Interest, The Following, Damages, Nurse Jackie, the Kindergarten Teacher (starring Maggie Gyllenhall), The Cobbler (starring Adam Sandler and Dustin Hoffman). He was commissioned by the Library of Congress to write and perform his second solo show, An American Soldier’s Journey Home, which commemorates the ending of the first World War. He’s recently finished writing, producing, and directing his TV series Landing Home which was commissioned by Thomas Edison State University, and tells the story of a Veteran having a hard time adjusting out of the Military.
