On Stage: Theatre The Second Mrs. Wilson 9 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ The first female president? It is April, 1915. President Woodrow Wilson, reeling from the loss of his wife, meets, falls in love with and marries Edith Galt. She very quickly becomes important -- and influential -- to her husband, and inconvenient to his circle of advisors. With the first World War looming, the President falls ill, and it is left to Edith to outsmart the men of Washington who would derail her beloved husband’s dream of world peace and the League of Nations. A fascinating look at the real life events in which a woman became the de facto President of the United States by Joe DiPietro. George Street Playhouse presents this November 10 through November 29. 2015 - ISSUE 10 103
