In The First Ladies Coalition Colleen McCracken invites the audience into her tiny New York City apartment, which also serves as her sewing shop.  A struggling immigrant and ex-convict, Colleen builds a unique and humorous relationship with a Coalition of four First Ladies:  Lady Bird Johnson, Jackie Kennedy, Eleanor Roosevelt and Mary Todd Lincoln.

Mysteries and secrets are unveiled — hers & theirs — and with deep delight, mimicry and subtle impersonations, Colleen seamlessly transports us into the life and times of these iconic women. Driven by their inspiration and encouragement, she begins to turn the daunting obstacles of her troubled past into a brighter future in today’s New York City.
