First Daughter Suite: Review, pics of Women in the White House

First Daughter Suite,  Michael LaChiusa’s musical focusing as much on the First Ladies Nixon, Carter, Ford, Reagan, and Bush as on their daughters, can be considered a sequel of sorts to Michael LaChiusa’s 1993 breakthrough musical First Lady Suite. The four scenes in the new musical take liberties with the subjects, and each ends with a surprise twist, some of which are outrageous. Still, for all its lapses, First Daughter Suite offers great satisfactions, the most prominent being a wonderful all-female cast.
