Harold Holzer, historian
Kathleen Chalfant as Mary Todd Lincoln
Rufus Collins as Abraham Lincoln

Explore one of the most fascinating, yet misunderstood White House relationships: that of Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln. They struggled with death, war, and disagreement, and endured civil wars at home and in their fractured country. With words taken entirely from the couple's writings, Kathleen Chalfant (Broadway's Angels in America, Netflix's House of Cards, and Showtime's The Affair) and Rufus Collins (Broadway's The Royal Family) bring their story to life, with historian Harold Holzer providing narration, context, and illustrations.

Bring the Kids for $1.

Enjoy a pre-performance drink in the Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium. Doors will open approximately one hour prior to the event and you may purchase a drink and relax in your seat prior to the show.
