Ford’s Theatre Director Paul R. Tetreault shares a personal remembrance and tribute to longtime friend of Ford’s Theatre, Senator Harry Reid.
Ford’s Theatre celebrates 40 years of producing A Christmas Carol in 2021. This year’s production features new staging– a deliberate and thoughtful attempt to create a safe environment for the acting company and provide a joyful holiday experience for all who attend. The audio drama is also available for free streaming with registration on www.fords.org, December 3-27, 2021.

Writer and BIPOC Critics Lab Fellow Rishi Mutalik spoke with Ford’s actors, designers, directors and staff to discover what makes the historic theatre and site of President Lincoln’s assassination so very special.
