A Lincoln Commemoration

Now He Belongs to the Ages: A Lincoln Commemoration
April 14, 2015, at 9 p.m.

Ford's Theatre presented a moving commemorative tribute to President Abraham Lincoln, 150 years to the day since his assassination. This evening event included readings of Lincoln’s words and stories, Civil War-era music, excerpts from Lincoln’s favorite theatre and operas, and more. Part of Ford’s 150:Remembering the Lincoln Assassination.

From the Playwright
“What I think sets Lincoln apart is the sense that somehow, through it all, he remained one of us. At some level—maybe because of his humble origins, values, sense of humor or even that very human streak of melancholy—we feel like we know him. Lincoln also matters because he is the great reminder of the 'unfinished work.' All the problems and questions that filled Lincoln’s life are the same ones that fill ours; he’s not here anymore, but we are. His life and leadership are both a reminder and a challenge, to think about what truly matters and the work left to be done.” -Richard Hellesen, Playwright
