Ellen Abrams's double portrait imagines eight encounters, over the course of six decades, between two major women of 20th-century politics: liberal lioness Eleanor Roosevelt, played by Trezana Beverley (who won a 1977 Tony for the original Broadway production of For Colored Girls…); and her sharp-tongued cousin and sometime enemy Alice Roosevelt Longworth, the eldest daughter of Teddy Roosevelt, played by New York stage staple Mary Bacon. Frances Hill directs for Urban Stages.
