Arts Alive! Spoken Word: The President and the Playwright: Abraham Lincoln and William Shakespeare
August 4 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM$25 – $35
In this special Chesterwood performance, actor Rufus Collins performs Lincoln’s favorite Shakespearian soliloquys, and historian Harold Holzer serves as narrator to describe Lincoln’s habits and preferences as a reader and theater-goer. The result is a fresh image of the pensive leader Daniel Chester French so beautifully portrayed for the Lincoln Memorial.
