Revels Repertory Company's There’s a Meeting Here Tonight!
November 13, 2010
There’s a Meeting Here Tonight! recreates a Hutchinson reunion after the Civil War. Family friend P.T. Barnum of Barnum and Bailey circus fame is invited and brings one of his attractions, “The Phenomenon,” an extraordinary one-man band and juggler. Frederick Douglass is also invited and recalls his appearances with the quartet at rallies at Boston’s Tremont Temple and camp meetings. This show is of interest not only for its superb entertainment quality but also for the insight that it offers into the important social justice work that the Hutchinson family did.
