The Story of a Theatrical Giant and His Shattered World

Short and Sweet

The life of Edwin Booth, the disgraced “rock star” of his era, is told from all the ugliness through to heartbreaking redemption. The public thinks that it knows the story of President Lincoln’s assassin John Wilkes Booth. But our backstory of the Booth Family and the founding of the Players is shrouded in mystery and riddled with seduction, tragedy, and intrigue. The Edwin Booth Movie unravels history and leads the audience on an unprecedented journey through the gaslight era to the present day painting the human condition in vibrant and bawdy colors.
