Crazy Mary Lincoln


Mary Todd Lincoln shopped like Nancy, stumped like Hillary, and suffered like Jackie: she was both loved and reviled by the public and the press. With toe-tapping choruses and beautiful ballads, this new musical by Jan Levy Tranen & Jay Schwandt, and directed by Pallas Artistic Director Tracey Elaine Chessum, explores the life of the First Family following the assassination of the President. Mary and Robert Todd grapple with grieving a husband and a father, as well as facing a very new dilemma: does a President belong to his family, or does he belong to the ages?
