“TEA FOR THREE: Lady Bird, Pat & Betty” by Eric H. Weinberger with Elaine Bromka

TEA FOR THREE: Lady Bird, Pat & Betty reveals life and love in the White House.

Particularly pertinent in an era of heightened politics, TEA FOR THREE humanizes the political scene with a story both whimsical and deeply moving -- a behind-the-scenes look at Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon, and Betty Ford.  Share the journey of each, as she faces her final days in the fishbowl of First Ladydom.

Emmy Award–winning actress Elaine Bromka, with 30 years in film, television, Broadway and Off-Broadway, starred as eight First Ladies opposite Rich Little in the PBS show The Presidents.  Intrigued by their stories, she went on with playwright Eric H. Weinberger to create this one-woman show.

A tale of a remarkable trio in a most unusual job -- and eighty-five minutes of heartwarming delight!

Sponsored by the Visiting Women & Minority Lecturer/Scholar Series, which is funded by the President’s Office and a grant to the Office of Institutional Diversity for the State of Michigan King-Chavez-Parks Initiative.
