My overall impression

A trio of pieces that work as one, this is powerful theater. The themes are timely: equality for women and the black man (Frederick Douglass); the self-importance of the woman next to the President, and how the country owes her (Mary Todd Lincoln, but substitute any celebrity now); and the ravings of a man with a gun who just wanted daddy’s approval (John Wilkes Booth), this is truly an evening that reminds us how far we haven’t come in all these years.

The writing is stellar; the cast, impeccable. Bravo.
