Mister Lincoln


Herbert Mitgang

Published by Dramatic Publishing

1 Male 0 Female

This is Lincoln's life and mind from the moment he stepped on the public stage, during his youth and maturity in Illinois as an advocate, to the momentous years he spent in Washington as the great emancipator during the Civil War

The events and ideas are rooted in historical records and new discoveries by the playwright about Lincoln the man, the husband, the wartime commander in chief, the president - with special emphasis on Lincoln's own brilliant language

By the conclusion of the play, the audience has discovered the inner life of the human, humorous, and often troubled president's personal and public self

The Lincoln who emerges in this show is no country bumpkin but a wise and often shrewd man of both velvet and steel

"Human and humane" ~ N.Y. Times

"Eloquent" ~ Washington Star
