Free Performance of HERstory: The 19th Amendment and the Power of the Vote
Just in time for Election Day, Chicago cabaret artists Anita Kallen and Catherine Thomson celebrate – in song and HERstory – the rabble-rousing pioneers who won the right to vote for the women of America and those fighting to preserve it. With music by Sondheim, Lennon & McCartney, the Sherman Brothers, Parton, Schwartz, Porter, and others, Anita and Catherine weave in the story of women’s suffrage from second-class citizenship at the nation’s founding to the nail-biting final days in the fight for ratification of the 19th Amendment and then to present-day efforts to preserve and maximize the power of women voting. Their shows are meticulously researched and crafted, not as collections of songs or concerts, per se, but as a form of musical storytelling that takes their audiences on a journey with songs and stories that entertain, educate, move, inspire, and make them laugh.
