My Lord, What a Night headed to historic Ford’s Theatre in Washington DC

February 24, 2020. Historic Ford’s Theatre in Washington DC announced today that MY LORD, WHAT A NIGHT by Deborah Brevoort will be produced in their 2020/2021 season, from January 22-February 21, 2021. The story of the play centers on the friendship between acclaimed contralto Marian Anderson and Albert Einstein. After performing in Princeton, New Jersey, in 1937 Anderson was denied lodging at the Nassau Inn because of her skin color. Albert Einstein invited her to stay at his home, and the two formed 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. Sheldon Epps (Twelve Angry Men) returns to direct Christopher Bloch as Albert Einstein and Felicia Curry as Marian Anderson in this remarkable new play about courage, justice and our shared humanity.
