While much has been written over the years about this prominent entertainment family, neither Martin Sheen nor Emilio Estevez has told their father-son story together and in person before. At their appearance at the Hudson Union Society, they will offer a striking, often stirring, frequently funny account of their lives as fathers and sons, often set against the background of Hollywood.

Martin Sheen, born Ramon Antonio Gerardo Estevez, is perhaps best known for his unforgettable performances in Badlands (1973), Apocalypse Now (1979), Wall Street (1987) The Departed (2006), Catch Me If You Can (2002), The Dead Zone (1983), Gandhi (1982), and as President Josiah Bartlet, on television's The West Wing (1999-2006).

Emilio Estevez has starred in numerous films including The Outsiders (1983), The Breakfast Club (1985), St. Elmo's Fire (1985), Young Guns (1988)and as Coach Gordon Bombay in The Mighty Ducks films (1992, 1994, 1996). More recently, he's made his mark as writer and director for Bobby (2006) and The Way (2011).
