This show takes place on a train as Eleanor is talking to her college-bound seatmate, and touches on some of the personal steps on her journey from shy child to inspiring woman. 

Anna Eleanor Roosevelt was an American politician, diplomat, and activist. She was the longest-serving First Lady of the United States, holding the post from March 1933 to April 1945 during her husband President Franklin D. Roosevelt's four terms in office. President Harry S. Truman later called her the "First Lady of the World" in tribute to her human rights achievements. 

Linda was last at the JCC when she performed as Julia Child in “Bon Appetite”.
