Ford's Theatre

Ford's Theatre Review

Looking much as it did when President Lincoln was shot at a performance of Our American Cousin, Ford's hosts musicals as well as dramas with historical connections. Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol is staged every year. The historic theater is now maintained by the National Park Service. Tours of the theater and a renovated museum are available for free, but timed entry tickets are required.
