After performing in Princeton, New Jersey, Marian Anderson is denied lodging at the Nassau Inn because she is Black. Einstein invites her to stay at his home, and the two form a profound friendship based on their love for music and their commitment to human rights. "My Lord, What a Night" takes us into Einstein’s home and imagines the conversations and circumstances that led to Anderson’s historic concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Ford’s Senior Artistic Advisor Sheldon Epps ("Twelve Angry Men") returns to direct Felicia Curry as Marian Anderson, Christopher Bloch as Albert Einstein, Michael Russotto as Abraham Flexner and Franchelle Stewart Dorn as Mary Church Terrell.
