Jennie Gourlay’s shot at stardom ended when Booth shot Lincoln. And Billy Hipkins has strong identification with a fellow also-ran. Is his current show biz life a karmic payback? Was he Jennie? Did he shoot Lincoln? And why does he love hoop skirts so much? He’ll tell you in his solo adventure through her story, his story, and history. Director: Perry Dell’Aquila.
