   Tea for Three:  Lady Bird, Pat & Betty

September 16



Tea for Three:  Lady Bird, Pat & Betty

Starring Emmy Award Winner Elaine Bromka

"Emmy Award-winning actress Elaine Bromka takes on the personae of Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon and Betty Ford in this thought-provoking perspective on the politics of love, devotion, and  first ladydom.  An unforgettable play, offering insights into each leading lady’s life with humor and poignancy.  Walk in the shoes of each of these uncommon women at the end of her husband’s administration--a threshold moment of insight and hope.  This deeply touching, funny play reveals the personal cost of what Pat Nixon called "the hardest unpaid job in the world." 

This program is made possible by the Friends of the Parsippany Library
