WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

While other women fought for the right to vote, one woman ran for President. Just as Hamilton is based on the story of one of our nation's founding fathers, Victoria Woodhull tells the story of the first woman to run for president, in 1872, before women in the United States had the right to vote.

The story of a fascinating, if forgotten figure, Victoria Woodhull will open your eyes and make you wonder how you could not know more about such a pivotal character in our nation's past. A blend of our nation's history and exciting theater, Victoria Woodhull tells the true story of the first woman to own a Wall St. brokerage - who then ran for the highest office in the land. Proof that fact can be stranger than fiction, this play is a must see for anyone following our elections who wants to know what went before - and how a woman campaigned to lead the nation before she even had the right to vote.
