Robert Lincoln (Dale Lyles) asks Fanny Seward (Cindie Bolkcom) for the waltz, distressing his fiancée Mary Eunice Harlan (Lida Rice, in pink) and outraging his mother (Jennifer Jenkins), whose social rival Fanny is. Actually, Fanny engineered the invitation to spite Mary Todd.
Fran Giardini and Tom Williams comfort Lida (weren't they Senator and Mrs. Harlan?), while Susan Mullan and Kevin Reid are scandalized.
