An American Story Chicago

This heartbreaking and poignant play was written by, is produced by and stars Hershey Felder, who is known for his elaborate one-man shows that usually portray famous musicians like Gershwin, Beethoven and Chopin. But now he is taking on much different subject matter with the same reverence and attention to detail as his other productions. He tells the story of Lincoln's assassination as told through the aging eyes of Dr. Charles Augustus Leale, who was a young Army medic in 1865. He just happened to be sitting near Lincoln's box in Ford's Theatre the night of his assassination and ended up attending to him during his final moments. As the doctor narrates this tragic and life-affirming tale, his words are accentuated by an orchestral accompaniment led by concertmaster Healy Henderson. Don't miss your chance to see this amazing show for yourself! Grab some tickets to one of the Chicago performances today!

The play begins with an aged Dr. Leale sitting in his Manhattan apartment in 1932. He's reminiscing about his long life and how certain events shaped the man he became. One of the stories he tells is a chilling encounter with Lincoln's future assassinator, John Wilkes Booth at a ministrel show in the early 1800s. The piano music and Felder's voice swell at this poignant moment in Leale's life. The next life-changing event are the moments after Lincoln is shot. He rushes to aid the president, only to realize that the wound is fatal. The doctor is forever changed by the hours he spent tending to Lincoln, and it is obvious in his heartbreaking monologues.
