“while sympathizing with the first ladies, he [LaChuisa] also regards them as fonts of hilarity.” Theatermania

How much influence does America’s first lady Melania Trump have on US politics?   This fresh and unusual musical by the remarkable, cutting-edge Tony nominated musical theatre writer-composer Michael John LaChiusa, takes a close look at the private lives of some of the most well-known wives of former US Presidents, Eleanor Roosevelt, Mamie Eisenhower, Bess Truman and Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy.

This relevant and illuminating musical offers a compelling yet poignant snapshot of America’s historical first ladies.

“ First Lady Suite looks at history through frankly surrealistic glasses and extends its feminist sympathies even to a Presidential spouse” New York Times
