John Wilkes Booth: One Night Only! (Regional, Center Stage -- Pearlstone Theatre, 2025) | Playbill

John Wilkes Booth: One Night Only!



From nine-time Emmy winner Matthew Weiner, creator, director, and showrunner of Mad Men and writer and executive producer on The Sopranos.

John Wilkes Booth – Maryland born, second rate actor, round-the-clock drunk, handsome womanizer, Southern sympathizer, white supremacist, and presidential assassin – is a man every American has heard of but few really know. Now Matthew Weiner, known for creating “big fun…classy entertainment with a brain” (Detroit Free Press) makes his playwriting debut with John Wilkes Booth: One Night Only!, an audacious look at the notorious man buried in an unmarked grave less than a mile from Baltimore Center Stage.

Directed by Stevie Walker Webb

Featuring Ben Ahlers
