Meeting Mr. Lincoln

BUY TICKETS

What would you say if you got to meet one of the greatest presidents of all time? While on an errand for seamstress Elizabeth Keckley, young Eliza finds a barefoot, uneducated country boy sneaking through the White House. Caleb wants to meet his idol Honest Abe—someone who was once like him but who rose to lead the nation. Eliza can help him, but what should he ask when he meets his hero? The audience helps them figure it out, and then in a surprise visit, everyone gets to talk to the president (who’s in the process of writing the Emancipation Proclamation) in this interactive play about identity, equality, and following big dreams.
