–San Francisco Chronicle



First Lady Suite
World Premiere Recording

The award-winning score by five-time Tony nominee Michael John LaChiusa (
The Wild Party, Marie Christine, Hello Again), in which First Ladies Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Kennedy and Mamie Eisenhower and the people closest to them reveal themselves in song. An imaginative and irreverent look behind the scenes of the White House, FIRST LADY SUITE receives its premiere recording here, following acclaimed productions in New York, Los Angeles, Houston and Washington, D.C. Directed for the Blank Theatre Company, Los Angeles, by Daniel Henning.
