A world premiere! Drawing on real events, this musical provides an intimate look at the Lincoln family’s personal and political struggles during their White House years. Despite enormous odds, personal loss and political intrigues, the Lincolns overcome their divided “houses” (family, cabinet and country), relying on their love, wit, wisdom, strength of conviction, and the help of unlikely allies. The story of Lincoln’s and our nation’s ultimate triumph, and the tragedy of his still-unfinished legacy, will touch your heart and mind.
