Yesterday was the last performance of Our American Cousin. It is hard to put down in words what an amazing and unique experience it was. We want to extend our deep appreciation to the 9th Pennsylvania Reserves and Rea Redd (Abraham Lincoln) for all that they did. We would also like to thank Kenneth Serfass (General Grant) for his dedication to audience participation, and taking the experience up to new heights. Finally, a heartfelt thank you to our audiences and supporters. Thank you for making history come to life with us!
It’s officially the 150th Anniversary of Lincoln’s assassination. Check out this NBC piece on Our American Cousin and the events that surrounded the assassination: http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/Our-American-Cousin-Lincoln-Assassination-Fords-Theatre-Play–299643681.html
We hope you’ll come and see the show this week! There are still tickets available (it’s a big theatre)!
Yes, we know that we are less than a week away from production, but it has come to our attention that we never updated our cast list from way back when. The role of Asa Trenchard (the American cousin) is now being played by the incredibly talented Michael Brewer! Michael is a long-time Pittsburgh community actor, and we are glad to have him on our stage for this momentous event.
