Ambitious, Absorbing, Great acting, Relevant, Great writing

See it if You enjoy less known American historical stories, women's Suffrage & feminist themes. Like to explore motivation, passion & ramifications.

Don't see it if You dislike historical documentation as this play consists of many scenes that chronicle Victoria Woodhull's life. This is not light drama. Read more

"The cast were performing their hearts out…Donna Mejia directed this traditional, historic tale with precision and pace, bringing this necessary story to life with vigor. Overall, I felt that the production needed a new frame. It feels a little old-fashioned in its current form...I think it is worthy subject matter and perhaps this talented group of people could take another look at how to best present this vital biography with a little more originality."

“Woodhull is considered by some to be the first female candidate for President. She and her sister Tennie, with the support of Cornelius Vandebilt became stock brokers and found a newspaper that advocates for sex education, free love, women's suffrage, spiritualism, and licensed prostitution. Claude Solnik has woven this story into an engaging and well-paced drama. He takes established facts from Woodhull's like and spins them into a believable narrative that is complex and fascinating.”
