ABOUT THE PLAY

Four Famous First Ladies step into the Sewing Shop of Colleen McCracken.  This resilient ex-con, immigrant, survivor of domestic violence, deeply aligns her passions with those of Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Kennedy, Lady Bird Johnson and Mary Todd Lincoln.
Mysteries and secrets are unveiled — hers & theirs — and via subtle impersonations, Colleen transports us into the life and times of these powerful First Ladies.  See Colleen turn insurmountable obstacles into extraordinary possibilities with the help of these courageous women!
“Ginger Grace is luminous in this searing portrait of women – both the famous and the ordinary – confronting impossible challenges. The play, directed by the esteemed Austin Pendleton, is rich with darkness, wit, and surprise.”  
– Janice Maffei, Literary Manager, the Schoolhouse Theater

“…imaginative and intriguing…the First Ladies in effect morphed into the equivalents of guardian angels and saints was something to behold.”
– Michael Gottsegen, Writer and Educator

“Wonderfully wrought & directed production of an endearing and unique character!!”
