Met Museum Presents LINCOLN SEEN AND HEARD with Stephen Lang and Harold Holzer Tonight
On the 203rd anniversary of Lincoln's birth, the Metropolitan Museum presents a special performance of "Lincoln Seen and Heard," a program that has been performed at the White House, Ford's Theatre, the George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton Presidential Libraries, and other venues. Actor Stephen Lang (Avatar, Terra Nova, A Few Good Men) reads the words of Lincoln, as the Metropolitan Museum's Harold Holzer, an award-winning Lincoln scholar, narrates and illustrates with Lincoln photographs. Lincoln was frequently photographed at precisely the time of his most important speeches, and this program combines his words and pictures to evoke the real Lincoln-from his days as prairie politician to the presidency and immortality.
Tonight, February 12, 2013, at 6:00 p.m. at The Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street, Manhattan.
