My Lord, What a Night



Ford's Theatre Performances Return In-Person!

Daily, Now - Oct 24, 2021. Tuesday-Saturday at 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. (Except Oct. 2, 6); 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 3. 11 a.m. performances Oct. 14 and 21.

Join us in person this fall for a new drama based on the real-life friendship between contralto Marian Anderson and physicist Albert Einstein.

After performing in Princeton, New Jersey, acclaimed contralto Marian Anderson is denied lodging at the Nassau Inn because she is Black. Physicist Albert Einstein invites her to stay at his home, and the two form a profound friendship based on their love for music and their commitment to human rights.

Based on true events, My Lord, What a Night takes us into Einstein's home and imagines the conversations and circumstances that led to Anderson's historic concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Ford's Senior Artistic Advisor Sheldon Epps (Twelve Angry Men) returns to direct Felicia Curry as Marian Anderson, Christopher Bloch as Albert Einstein, Michael Russotto as Abraham Flexner and Franchelle Stewart Dorn as Mary Church Terrell. Don't miss this remarkable new play about courage, justice and our shared humanity.

Recommended for ages 12 and older.
