"Tea for Three: Lady Bird, Pat & Betty" coming to The Ned Feb. 4
Three former First Ladies will be sharing secrets at 3 p.m., Sat. Feb. 4, 2017, in the Off-Broadway hit, “Tea for Three: Lady Bird, Pat & Betty,” at The Ned, 314 E. Main St., in downtown Jackson.
Starring the Emmy Award-winning Elaine Bromka, this one-woman show is a witty and intimate re-imagining of three women who suddenly found themselves celebrities -- a behind-the-scenes look at Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon, and Betty Ford, revealing the personal cost of what Mrs. Nixon called the hardest unpaid job in the world.”
Bromka is also teaching a master class in the theater department at Union University on Feb. 3.
The performance will benefit the Sue Shelton White bronze sculpture being placed and dedicated in the City Hall Plaza on May 25, 2017. All donation levels are welcome. Those who donate from $500 and up may have their name or the name of someone they wish to honor engraved on the bronze plaque next to the sculpture. Donors at $5,000 and up will also receive a small bronze miniature of the Sue Shelton White sculpture. For more details on donation levels, see the Sue Shelton White Tennessee Suffragist Facebook page.
Tickets for “Tea for Three” are $50 each and are available at the Baker’s Rack, Carriage House Antique Market and Marilyn Jackson’s Gifts either by check made out to Sue Shelton White Memorial or by cash. Tickets will also be available at the door one hour prior to the performance. There is no reserved seating.
Bromka will conclude the performance with a brief question and answer session and will be honored at a reception in The Ned gallery following “Tea for Three.”
