Notes for the Week - 3/3

MTG's production of Black Friday will be playing at the Mabel Tainter the first two weekends in May. This play was written by local historian, the late John Russell, and is an immersive theater experience chronicling the final hours of Abraham Lincoln's life. This show was written specifically to be performed in the Mabel Tainter Theater and is a one-of-a-kind theatrical moment. Tickets are on sale now and can be found here. A full post will come at a later date.
