La Muse Venale Acting Troupe presents a musical tale of dreams, possibilities and heartbreak with Robert L. Hecker’s Honestly Abe, shining a bright light on the early, little-known life of President Abraham Lincoln. Set in Indiana in the 1800s and based on historical facts, Honestly Abe uncovers young Abe Lincoln as a lanky prankster who loved to read and who can spin a yarn with the best of them. Abe was close to his mother and sister but his relationship with his father was strained at best. Abe Lincoln dreams of the day he can quit the family farm, leave rail-splitting behind, and become a riverboat captain. But family tragedies, a yearning for revenge by Abe, and the advice of a close friend cause Abe to change his plans. Abe Lincoln is thrust upon a path toward law and politics instead; but not before leaving behind someone in his life whom he loves dearly.
