THE TERRIBLE LEGEND OF VICTORIA WOODHULL EXTENDS NEW YORK RUN ON THEATRE ROW WITH SATURDAY PERFORMANCE
-- The First Woman to Run for President of the United States… 146 Years Ago… Returns! Again! --
New York City, Oct 5th, 2018. After a successful, sold out opening night performance, The Terrible Legend of Victoria Woodhull, extends its run at United Solo Theatre Festival, for an additional performance on Theatre Row - The Studio Theatre, 410 W 42nd St, New York, NY 10036 - Saturday, Oct 6th at 7:30pm.
Many terrible tales have been told about Victoria C. Woodhull, the first woman to run for President of the United States in 1872. A well-meaning Los Angeles actress (Ashley Ford) will summon the spirit of Victoria in a seance to tell her tale from beyond the grave, in the light of today’s #metoo movement and set the record straight.
The solo show follows her rise from poverty to riches, as a traveling Clairvoyant who became the first female stockbroker on Wall Street, the first woman to formally address Congress, running her own progressive NY newspaper, her ultimate betrayal and demise. It also includes a Seance where the audience will be invited to chant and summon the spirit of Victoria Woodhull herself to tell her own tale!
The Terrible Legend of Victoria Woodhulll received both a west coast premiere at the 2018 Hollywood Fringe Festival this past June and east coast premiere in New York City last evening, Thursday, Oct 4th. Written by Theo Salter, Directed by Karen Louisa Linton, Stage Managed by Aislinn Curry* and performed by Ashley Ford.
