DIVA BY DIVA: AMERICAN PATRIOT…A WOMAN’S JOURNEY
DIVA by DIVA: A Celebration of Women!, O’Connell & Company’s award-winning original show, presents a special edition, “DIVA by DIVA: American Patriot…A Woman’s Journey.” This Suffragist DIVA show marks the anniversary of Women’s Suffrage in the United States.
On August 26, 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution became law, and women could vote in the fall elections, including in the Presidential election. None of the leaders of the women’s suffrage movement were present when the proclamation was signed, and no photographers or film cameras recorded the event. That afternoon, Carrie Chapman Catt, head of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, was received at the White House by President Woodrow Wilson and First Lady Edith Wilson.
The TR Site is the perfect venue for this anniversary of the final Women’s Suffrage Victory. The Site’s current exhibit (“Votes for Women!”) examines the long struggle for women’s voting rights and specifically addresses Theodore Roosevelt’s rather complex relationship with the movement.
This wonderful and timely tribute show version of DIVA by DIVA is brimming with songs, readings, humor and quotes, which reflect this special part of our HERstory. Many local community leader DIVAs will be featured as special guests.
Please note a reception for all attendees will follow the performance.
Tickets are $20 for general admission, but only $15 for TR Site members.
