Will Geer's Theatricum Botanicum


unnamed (2)

June 18 sees the opening of TOM at Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum. This world premiere adaptation with music, written and directed by Ellen Geer, brings a fresh perspective to Harriet Beecher Stowe’s classic novel, “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” Long before Black Lives Matter became part of our lexicon, Stowe’s great novel demanded freedom and equality for all, changing forever how Americans viewed slavery, galvanizing the abolition movement and contributing to the outbreak of the Civil War.
