All Things Equal: The Life & Trials of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
In this one-woman play starring Michelle Azar, Court Justice “RBG” welcomes a friend of the family to her cozy chambers to convey, over the course of ninety fascinating and often funny minutes, a sense of her life and its many trials: losing her mother the day before she graduated as valedictorian of her Brooklyn high school…being one of only nine young women studying law at Harvard while also raising a daughter and helping her husband battle cancer…fighting for women’s rights in the nineteen-seventies before condescending all-male courts…and taking courageous stands for human rights as a voice of reason amid a splintering and increasingly politicized Supreme Court. An evening with a great and compassionate icon of straight-thinking American justice emerges…an RBG who is not only “notorious” but victorious as she takes a stand for ordinary people facing the many challenges of a changing world. Bring your scrunchies, your hankies, your humor and your heart to this entertaining and uplifting event!
Meet the cast
"I believe ALL THINGS EQUAL: THE LIFE AND TRIALS OF RUTH BADER GINSBURG will bring together the audience and the glorious RBG in an enlightening and touching encounter with the remarkable person "behind the initials," says playwright Rupert Holmes. "All Things Equal offers each theater-goer the chance better to know this woman, her yearning for equality, and her love for this nation's precious institutions: Ruth ... Justice ... and the American way.""Rupert Holmes, Tony Award-winning playwright
