“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward disco.” -Tom Swift

Illinois schoolteacher Harmony Green has told her fourth grade class that Menard County's most beloved homegrown hero, Abraham Lincoln, was gay. When Honest Abe is "outed" in a reimagined Christmas pageant, controversy and chaos engulf the town. As the trial of the century begins, big-city reporters and Congressional candidates descend, and family skeletons are forced out of the closet. Top hats and beards abound in this hilarious, poignant, and timely look at prejudice past and present. "An... ambitious mashup of burlesque anarchy, elaborate narrative intrigue, serious sociopolitical themes, and campy dance interludes... frequently ingenious… hilarious" – Variety   "Abraham Lincoln's Big, Gay Dance Party knocks it out of the park. ...There aren't enough words in this review to describe how much I recommend it." – NYTheatre.com
