    Exquisite! This explosion of history, spectacle, and satire both makes one reconsider their understanding of Lincoln's public persona and legacy while also contemplating dynamics of race, gender, gender-presentation, self image, and body image in contemporary queer culture. Taffeta is a perfectly rendered, compelling POV from which to view this story. The stage images within this piece are mind-blowing, evocative, and gorgeously figurative. How I'd love to see this on its feet, as this theatrical event definitely belongs on the stage.
