Last of Mrs. Lincoln, The

Five-time Tony Award-winner, Julie Harris, recreates her 1972 award-winning Broadway portrayal in this powerful and touching look at the final seventeen years in the life of Mary Todd Lincoln, widow to the martyred President. Based on real events, this production casts a sad and sympathetic light onto this frighteningly complicated woman. Mary Lincoln scavenges desperately for money, loses a cherished son to consumption, is branded a lunatic and committed to a mental institution; culminating with her spending her final days fleeing from the preying eyes of the public and a scandal-hungry press.
