WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Jennie Gourlay was an actress about to get a shot at stardom at Ford's Theatre, a shot that was canceled when John Wilkes Booth shot Lincoln. So what became of Jennie? And why is Billy Hipkins taking her story so personally? Strong identification with a fellow also-ran, or is his current show biz life a karmic payback? Was he Jennie Gourlay? Or did he shoot Lincoln? And why does he love hoop skirts so much? Let him tell you in his one man adventure through her story, his story, and history.
