First Lady Suite

Oct. 18–27, 2013

Every First Lady makes her own rules.

By Michael John LaChiusa

A musical look into the lives of four 20th century First Ladies: Jackie Kennedy, Mamie Eisenhower, Bess Truman, and Eleanor Roosevelt. From their shared struggle to define the role of women in a changing world, to each one’s search to define herself while living in the glare of the public eye, this musical takes a lyrical, humorous, and poignant look into the lives of these legendary women.
