Date: May 11, 2016
Time: 10:30 am
Watch history come alive at Bishop Spencer Place! You are cordially invited to see Emmy Award-winning actress Elaine Bromka star in the Off-Broadway hit Tea for Three, a refreshingly witty portrait gallery of three remarkable First Ladies – Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon and Betty Ford. Walk in the shoes of each of these uncommon women as she faces her final days in the fishbowl of First Ladydom – a threshold moment of insight and hope.
Poignantly written by playwright Eric H. Weinberger with Ms. Bromka, this deeply touching, funny play reveals the personal cost of what Pat Nixon called “the hardest unpaid job in the world.”
Please join us for this unforgettable performance by Ms. Bromka that has been hailed as a “subtle feat of brilliant acting” by the Record-Review.
Complimentary refreshments will be served.
Seating is limited, so RSVP below or by calling Kim at (816) 595-5015 by Friday, May 6.
Complimentary valet parking is available. Please use the Jefferson entrance off of 44th Street.
