All aboard!

It's 1876...

Make way for the Jarrett Players, a troupe of Shakespearean actors traveling coast-to-coast from New York City to San Francisco nonstop on the LIGHTNING EXPRESS to perform Henry V.

Three Days?


Unheard of! Spectacular! Never done before!

Newspapers love this daring publicity stunt. Railroads too. What a grand way to celebrate the nation's 100th anniversary (and make tons of money too)!

It’s a non-stop ride with an unexpected finish, not only for Henry V, but Sitting Bull, Buffalo Bill, and George Armstrong Custer, too.
