Riding high after its rave review from the New York TimesTEA FOR THREE will be at CTC for a special one-night only engagement!

Do you remember this hit from our 2004 season? TEA FOR THREE stars Elaine Bromka in this widely praised portrayal of three First Ladies – Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon, and Betty Ford. Jeffrey Borak of The Berkshire Eagle reviewing the CTC production in 2004 wrote “Elaine Bromka’s portrait of Pat Nixon is expertly crafted, wrenching, sad, and haunting.” The Republican greeted the CTC transfer to City Stage in Springfield with: “This play is polished, effective, precise, amusing and touching.
