Song & Dance: A tuneful preview of Speech & Debate

Posted By on Thu, Jan 6, 2011 at 1:23 PM

Speech & Debate, which opens this weekend at TheatreWorks, isn't a musical, although the honest teenage comedy does feature one funny, heartbreaking song. The number—captured in rehearsal below— is all about a Salem witch who travels forward in time to advise a very young, decidedly gay Abe Lincoln to hide his sexual proclivities in order to become president and free the slaves. Best line: "Trust me, I'm a Puritan."
