John Quincy Adams lived his life backwards: brilliant diplomat in his youth, fervent congressman as a man, ineffectual president in his prime. This unique and timely play imagines a kaleidoscope of confrontations between JQA and some of his key contemporaries. At once provocative and patriotic, this power play challenges the way we think of our country and shines a curious spotlight on the American experiment as it continues to evolve.
In the new Evelyn Wheeler Swenson Theatre space. Note: for those wishing to social distance, 2 seating sections will have reduced capacity seating.
Interpreted for the hearing impaired on Sun, Oct 24.
“Ambitious, delightful…something that will linger in minds long after the lights have lifted, much like any presidential legacy” - BroadwayWorld
