Particularly pertinent in an era of heightened politics, “Tea for Three” humanizes the political scene with a story both whimsical and deeply moving – a behind-the-scenes look at Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon and Betty Ford. Share the journey of each as she deals with the fishbowl of First Ladydom.
Emmy award–winning actress Elaine Bromka, with more than 30 years in film, television, Broadway and Off-Broadway, starred as eight First Ladies opposite Rich Little in the PBS show “The Presidents.” Intrigued by their stories, she went on with playwright Eric H. Weinberger to create this one-woman show.
