Wednesday, June 17th to July 25th
Where: The First Presbyterian Church of Cape May, 500 Hughes, Cape May
From June 17 – July 25, it’s “Mr. Lincoln,” selected to commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the President’s assassination. On Good Friday, April 14,1865, the President and Mrs. Lincoln were watching “Our American Cousin” at Ford’s Theatre when John Wilkes Booth aimed a pistol at Mr. Lincoln’s head, and fired. In Herbert Mitgang’s play, Lincoln’s life flashes before him, from his early days as a lawyer, to President of the United States as the bullet does it dirty deed. During the 1980s, “Mr. Lincoln,” starring British actor Roy Dotrice, was performed in four countries. It opened in Canada before moving to Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C., and the Morosco Theater on Broadway. “Mr. Lincoln” was presented as the first Hallmark Hall of Fame drama on PBS. Tom Byrn who has performed in several ELTC productions including the highly acclaimed “Lost on the Natchez Trace” and “Within the Law,” will be portraying Lincoln.
