"We feel it's important to keep our programming diverse and unexpected," explains Mark A. Rhea, Keegan founder and producing artistic director.
"As a theater company and a group of artists, we are committed to producing raw, intimate takes on familiar and great works like Glengarry and Cuckoo's Nest, as well as to tackling new and exciting works by artists who have come to our attention because of their unique voice or take on the human condition.
Lincolnesque is a perfect example of this kind of opportunity for Keegan
Obviously, the 200th birthday of Lincoln provided a great tie-in for Keegan
to produce the show in 2009, and Rhea
believes that audiences will relish the experience of this fresh look at the Washington DC political scene and the echoes of Lincoln's legendary oratory skills that are woven throughout the script.
Lincolnesque is directed by Mark A. Rhea
and features Keegan regulars Peter Finnegan, Michael Innocenti, Susan Marie Rhea, and Stan Shulman.
