  3. Honestly Abe - The Musical

Honestly Abe - The Musical, is based upon young Abraham Lincoln when he was a teenage 'railsplitter' in Indiana. This is the least known, but most formative, entertaining, and joyous period of his life.

La Muse Venale, Inc. presents Robert L. Hecker's, "Honestly Abe," a musical tale of dreams, possibilities and heartbreak, shining a light on a little-known early chapter in the life of President Abraham Lincoln. Directed by M. Stefan Stozier.

Set in Indiana in the late 1820s, and based on historical fact, "Honestly Abe" presents the young Abe Lincoln as a lanky, prankster boy who loves to read and who can tell a yarn with the best of them. Close to both his mother and sister, while never quite seeing eye-to-eye with his father, Abe dreams of the day he can quit the family farm, leave his life of "rail-splitting" in the past and become a riverboat pilot. But family tragedies, a desire for revenge and the advice of a close friend will cause him to change his plans, setting him on the path toward the law and politics, but not before leaving someone very special behind.
