The tragedian, the rebel, the prince
This episode focuses on the Booth family to evaluate their impact on American theater and to create an image of Victorian American culture. The careers of actor Julius Brutus Booth, Sr.; notorius assassin John Wilkes Booth; and actor Edwin Booth, America's first great Hamlet and possibly the most important American actor of the 19th century, are examined.
