Abraham Lincoln, Children, and Homosexuality: The New Play

Abraham Lincoln’s Big, Gay Dance Party, the off-Broadway show from Aaron Loeb, opening July 27 in New York where “a fourth-grade Christmas pageant in Lincoln’s rural Illinois hometown sets off a firestorm of controversy when it calls into question Honest Abe’s sexuality. A thought-provoking, laugh-out-loud funny, and uniquely American story unfolds, offering surprises at every turn. Each of the three acts lets the audience see the story from a different character’s viewpoint – and at each performance the audience decides in which order the acts are performed, creating a Rubik’s Cube-like theatrical event.” The actors must be thrilled to hand over control to the audience — just like President Lincoln did to individual states with the federal government!
