Inside the Box: From Her Perspective
By Lori Strelecki
Starring our own Patricia Durante, Clara Harris, Mary Todd Lincoln, and Laura Keene were the three women “inside the box” at the Ford’s theater when Lincoln was shot. Clara Harris was the young fiancee of a major in the army who was invited to attend the show with the president and first lady Mary Todd Lincoln. Laura Keene was the actress who starred in, and produced the play that was being performed that evening. She was the first female to own and manage a theater in the U.S. They all tell their version of what happened that fateful night.
