|TERRY BAUM with Eleanor Roosevelt on the wall|
I sure as hell did not know what to expect in the one woman show at the Eureka Theatre. Its an amazing story about Lorena Hickok (Terry Baum). She was kind of a tough woman who worked for the Press. Yeh - she had her eye on something else. And...that someone else was Eleanor Roosevelt. Who could believe that these two Ladies would be cuddling up together. And, I was amazed at what was going on at the Roosevelt White House.
Eleanor is Dead now, and so is Lorena Hickok. In the Roosevelt Archives -- is where you will now be able to read all about it. Lorena Hickok did not reveal the hundreds of letters between the awesome women until Hick died. It sure as hell threw me for a loop. Hickok went from the Newsroom to an amazing Cat and Mouse hide out, at the Whitehouse. How did they hide between the two Ladies? However -- It seems that Roosevelt knew all about it - but probably did not care. Even I didn't expect that the White House had so much fun while they were alive.
In 1932 is when the two Ladies met at the White House. Hick left her AP Job to cozy up with Eleanor. But, even Eleanor was just a little nervous about the whole setup. Sure, they still got together - but Eleanors sentiments began to fray. Eventually - they only talked on the phone. When they couldn't do that, they exchanged their love letters. Yes - they had a "Gay old Time" on the hill" - and they got away with it.
