|Elizabeth Powel has Entered the Building

So ... the cat's out of the bag and the secret's sprung and all of that so I can talk about this -- last week trillian_stars did the first two performances of her one woman interpretive show about Eliza Willing Powel, intellectual, socialite, and mother of the American Revolution. She was married to Samuel Powel, the last mayor of Philadelphia before the war and the first after it, and she was a close personal confidant of General, then President, George Washington and a number of the delegates to the Continental Congress.
Trillian's performance, titled "a moral dilemma" is based around a letter that Eliza sent to Washington which eventually convinced him to eschew retirement and accept a second term as President -- a move that perhaps saved the fledgling country from being a flash in the pan.
I nervously sneaked this panorama from somewhere in the middle of the audience.
Clickenzee to see ever larger and fuzzier!
and after the show, with Philadelphia's Theateratti
Clickenzee to Embiggen!
I quickly abandoned the after-show hobknobbing to savage the unguarded catering table downstairs, someone had to do it.
