WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Booth: The Musical, with lyrics by Jonathan Yordy, book and direction by Niyi Coker and artistic direction/conducting by James Richards, is an examination of the life of 19th-Century maverick actor Edwin Booth, told from the perspective of his daughter, Edwina. Undoubtedly, the infamous assassination of Abraham Lincoln by his brother, John Wilkes, plays a major part in shaping and influencing Edwina's exploration of the life of her father. Engulfed in this reflection, the show is a musical voyage into the sometimes disturbing relationships that defined Edwin as son, husband, father, brother and actor.
