ABRAHAM LINCOLN – featuring Lincoln impersonator Danny Russel.
Hilarity and heartbreak abound as our most famous Hoosier, Abraham Lincoln traces his amazing journey from a log cabin to the White House in this compelling performance. In his customary black suit and ever-present stovepipe hat you’ll learn about his Indiana youth (age 7-21) where frontier life was precarious, disease a constant companion, and death a hovering presence. How did he overcome hardscrabble poverty, numerous business failures and one undistinguished term in Congress? For Lincoln, “all men created equal” was a clarion call leading to his nomination for the presidency, inspiring the Emancipation Proclamation, justifying the Civil War, and the 13th Amendment which abolished slavery. Too often obscured by the marble statue, this humorous portrayal reveals the humble and humane statesman who inspired it.
In addition to being a lifetime member of the National Association of Lincoln Presenters, Mr. Russel is a four-time grant recipient honored by the Indiana Arts Commission for theatrical excellence.
