WHITEY BULGER: The Making of a Monster with Producer Susan Gray

March 11 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 pm

After 16 years on the FBI’s ‘Most Wanted’ list, infamous Irish Mafia boss James “Whitey” Bulger was apprehended on June 22, 2011, in a rent-controlled, beachfront apartment in Santa Monica, CA. To those who only knew him by an alias, few could have guessed that the man who left milk on his doorstep for neighborhood cats was, in fact, a fugitive crime boss believed to have killed at least 19 people, a calculating mastermind whose criminal empire extended across the country, and, unlike other upper echelon crime figures, an FBI informant who operated under the protection of the country’s most powerful law enforcement agency for 20 years. Produced by Northern Light Productions, an official production company of The Mob Museum in Las Vegas, and based on the book Whitey: The Life of America’s Most Notorious Mob Boss by Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neil, WHITEY BULGER: THE MAKING OF A MONSTER digs deep into the mind of a psychopath, exploring the roots of Bulger’s insatiable need for power and control.
