Tea for Three: Lady Bird, Pat, and Betty
by Eric H. Weinberger and Elaine Bromka
Sunday January 19, 3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
What is it like for a woman whose husband becomes the president of the United States – and she is thrust into the spotlight?
This witty, sly and deeply moving portrayal performed by Leslie Goddard explores the hopes and fears of Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon and Betty Ford. In three scenes taking place in the family quarters of the White House, each of the confides to the audiences. Secrets are spilled about their husbands’ rise to power, their romances with the men and their paths as wives in the White House. Each becomes intimate as the women wrestle with what Pat Nixon called “the hardest unpaid job in the world.”
