This is one of America's most amazing stories. Edwin Booth was the most famous actor of his day. His brother, John Wilkes Booth, also an actor, shot President Lincoln. It was an inside job. Celebrities had access to presidents. (Has anything changed?) Edwin Booth, with his high ideals, would go on to establish his own classic theater in New York. It bankrupted him. This play examines Edwin Booth's life, celebrates his ideals, and offers a unique look into a part of history that should be remembered.
