Marymount Manhattan College cordially invites alumni, parents, and friends to join us for a pre-show reception followed by a performance of Freedom’s Song in Washington, DC.
DETAILS: This spring, Ford’s Theatre will be presenting Freedom’s Song. This “epic, concert-style musical features the words of Abraham Lincoln and music inspired by those who lived through the Civil War… Jeff Calhoun (Newsies) returns to direct this lively historical opus.” The music includes numbers from Frank Wildhorn’s The Civil War.
Before heading to the show, meet and mingle with other friends of MMC at a special pre-show reception, including Mr. Wildhorn and Mr. Calhoun, the songwriter and director, respectively, both of whom are longtime friends of MMC.
