High Tea with Alexander Hamilton's Women

Meet the Real Schuyler Sisters Who Captivated Hamilton!

 A historical portrayal by Leslie Goddard


Doors open at 12:30 pm, Tea service commences at 1:00 pm

 

Alexander Hamilton was not just a powerful Founding Father, he was also a loving husband and father, a flirtatious brother-in-law, and an incorrigible lady-killer. In this new living-history portrayal, meet the real Schuyler sisters who captivated Hamilton:

* His wife, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton,
* Her sister, the charming, witty Angelica Schuyler Church, and
* Her other sister, high-spirited Peggy Schuyler van Rensselaer

Actress and scholar Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., brings these smart, beautiful women to life as they discuss their complicated relationships with Hamilton and the other men in their lives and help shape the new nation. You don’t need to have seen the smash hit musical Hamilton to enjoy this, but if you have, it’ll bring the history behind the show alive!

Goddard holds a Ph.D. from Northwestern University, specializing in U.S. cultural history, American studies, and women's history as well as a master's degree in theater and in museum studies. A former museum director, she is the author of two books: Remembering Marshall Fields and Chicago’s Sweet Candy History. She currently works full time as a historical interpreter, author and public speaker.

Our tables seat 10 guests. We will do our very best to arrange you are seated with your friends. Please advise by phone or e-mail if you have friends paying separately who will sit with you.

An early bird boutique will feature jewelry, hats, purses and accessories .... and Tupperware!
