We’re a week away for starting rehearsals for our season opener, 45 Plays for 45 Presidents. The show where each President gets a 2 minute play, as we give you the smartest (and fastest) civics lesson you’ve ever received.
Also, each night the audience will select how American history moves forward – so we’ll either close with a Hillary Clinton play or a Donald Trump play based on you audience response!
But before we get into how this hilarious and thoughtful pieces comes together, let’s talk about WHO is doing this play.
Meet our cast that will be portraying all 45 presidents and everyone else in their lives.
