The Last Reading of Charlotte Cushman is “a onewoman show about the greatest American actress of the nineteenth century” (Carolyn Gage). Cushman was a larger-than-life, charismatic, commanding figure, famed for her “breeches” roles, who was not shy about her sexuality, her life, or her death. Confronted with her own mortality as she battled breast cancer, Gage’s Cushman offers insights into her relationships and her work, quoting some of her most memorable roles, in a work that is “Electrifying…enormously entertaining, absorbing, and brutally honest” (The Sunday Mail, Adelaide, Australia).
