My Lord, What A Night

October 1, 2021 - October 24, 2021

Location: Ford's Theatre

This drama based on the real-life friendship between Marian Anderson and Albert Einstein will light up the stage at Ford’s Theatre this October. Based on true events, My Lord, What a Night details the impetus of a kinship between a legendary contralto and perhaps the most famous physicist to ever live. After a performance in Princeton, New Jersey, Anderson is denied lodging because she is Black. Einstein invites her to his home, and the narrative imagines conversations that led to Anderson’s historic concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
