Written & Performed by Ginger Grace
Directed by Austin Pendleton
In “The First Ladies Coalition” Colleen McCracken invites the audience into her tiny New York apartment, which also serves as her sewing shop. A struggling immigrant and ex-convict, a survivor of domestic violence, Colleen builds a Coalition with four First Ladies: Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Kennedy, Lady Bird Johnson and Mary Todd Lincoln. Mysteries and secrets are unveiled — hers & theirs — and, with deep delight in mimicry and subtle impersonations, Colleen seamlessly transports us into the life and times of these iconic women. Driven by their inspiration and encouragement, she finds power to turn insurmountable obstacles into the extraordinary — discovering new found freedom!
