Our friends at Quicksilver Radio Theater are bringing back their docudrama, Good Friday, 1865, Licoln’s Last Day to the stage. As I’ve said before, this is a great play, and if you’re anywhere near NYC, you should make an effort to check it out!
“Really first rate…a terrific job, both in adapting and performing…wonderful work!”- Leonard Maltin, author of “The Great American Broadcast.”
In this audio docudrama (recipient of the National Audio Theatre’s “Best Script” award), the character of a country, and its President, are revealed — as a traumatic war winds down, and eerie events presage Abraham Lincoln’s own end…
Live on stage with a full cast, live sound effects, and original music composed by Tony-Award winner MARK HOLLMANN, and performed by members of the New York Repertory Orchestra.
