Adventure in the Arts

Welcome! Great Circle Productions brings to life those projects that inspire, offer hope, and touch the human heart. Our first production, EDWIN, The Story of Edwin Booth, is a unique adventure in music, theater, and history. Edwin Booth was the finest American Shakespearean actor of his day, though his triumphs were marred by public and private tragedy. EDWIN takes us backstage on the night of his courageous return to the stage after his brother assassinated President Lincoln–braving death threats, public outrage, and his own scarred past.
