|There is much to admire in this production, particularly the wonderful performers who recite Shakespeare eloquently, sing beautifully, and act convincingly. It is a pleasure to hear their voices in speech or song.

On Sunday, the EDWIN family bade a fond farewell to our temporary home atSt.Clement’s, amid cheers, tears, and a well-deserved standing ovation for our spectacular cast and marvelous musicians. All in all, this too-brief trial Off-Broadway run was a remarkable step on the continuing adventure of EDWIN, The Story of Edwin Booth.
And the adventure will continue! Plans are afoot to take EDWIN on the road. Just as Edwin Booth traveled to different cities, drawing crowds of excited theatergoers, we aim to bring the same thrill to audiences around the country before returning to New York City next year.
If you didn’t have a chance to see EDWIN, take a look at a couple of the glowing reviews we received. Theater Pizzazz hailed EDWIN as a “marvelous musical production…a scintillating elucidation of an amazing man and his family.” Lisa G. Samia, the award-winning author of My Name Is John Singer, a dazzling novel about John Wilkes Booth, posted on her website an essay that summed up our presentation of the “compelling and heartbreaking story” of Edwin Booth’s life in a single, scrumptious word: “Extraordinary.”
We are deeply grateful to everyone who has supported us through this phase of the adventure. We welcome your continued support and invite everyone to contribute to our effort to inspire, offer hope, and touch the human heart as we move forward. You can contribute now by simply clicking here. Because we’re a non-profit organization, any contribution you offer is tax-deductible!
