Tea for Three: Lady Bird, Pat, and Betty (A Leslie Goddard Program)

Leslie Goddard performs this play by Eric H. Weinberger and Elaine Bromka about three first ladies, Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon and Betty Ford

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.

Secrets are spilled about their husbands’ rise to power, their romances with the men and their paths as wives
