Directed by Jenny Sullivan
Produced by David Hunt Stafford
This is THE GHOSTS OF MARY LINCOLN:
Mary Todd Lincoln’s tortured life comes to the stage in the one-woman play The Ghosts of Mary Lincoln, with a tour de force performance by Michele Tauber. A true gothic tale that’s stranger than fiction, the First Lady’s life was plagued by depression and eventual madness. Surrounded by death, losing three sons and a husband, she was a devout spiritualist, even holding séances in the White House. You’ll hear tales of presidential grave robbers, whispered warnings from the undead and, of course, that fateful night at Ford’s Theatre.
