“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.
