Abigail Adams is a woman who calls it like she sees it, and Kim Hanley shows us a woman who will confront something that needs to be addressed, even if it makes her uncomfortable. Abigail is an upper class woman who married a man she respected, a life partner who took her seriously. Although Abigail is sometimes belatedly considered elitist for believing that uneducated Americans had not earned a vote, Kim reminds us that our first Second Lady and second First Lady wanted a knowledgeable electorate able to make informed decisions. Ms. Hanley’s interactive programs involve audience members who begin with large piles of money that grow smaller with each tax act that the British Parliament passes, illustrating the economic tyranny the colonials faced under British rule. Abigail contrasts this inequality with a look into an egalitarian marriage of two intelligent, articulate people who value themselves, each other and their relationship. Ticket price includes a menu choice of one of the following selections: Grilled 10 oz. Strip Steak: Enjoy a tender steak grilled to perfection. Chicken Marsala: Try our pan seared chicken breast finished with a tasty Marsala mushroom sauce. All meals are served with a salad, a cup of soup, sides, and a delectable desert.
