Last weekend you may have seen a listing on the Patch’s event page for a dramatic reading of Pass My Imperfections Lightly (written by Vaughn McBride) which is a docudrama that was performed last Sunday afternoon by Linda Turash as Mary Todd Lincoln. The event was sponsored by the Eatontown Historical Committee and was held at Community Center in the Borough. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend and I wanted to share the experience with my friends here on the Patch. The year is 1876. Dressed in the clothing of the day, Mary Todd Lincoln speaks of her early years growing up in Lexington, Kentucky thru her time later on in her life when her only surviving child Robert, had her committed to an insane asylum. Other notable points in her life she recounts include the affect the death of her mother had on her, her courtship and marriage to the future President, the deaths of three of her four children, her time in the White House during the Civil War and President Lincolns assassination. I found the entire performance very compelling and intriguing and would highly recommend it. If you could not attend, have no worries. Mrs. Turash resides in New Jersey and does perform for various oranizations such as libraries, historical groups etc. Her show is also available for booking. Linda can be contacted at 732-840-3899. Refreshments were served afterwards at the Eatontown Museum. The Eatontown Museum is located at 75 Broad Street and is open on the first Sunday of every month from Noon-3 PM.
