Featuring UW Madison Theater Professor Patrick Sims, Milwaukee actors Jonathan West, Matt Daniels, Georgina McKee, and Marcella Kearns
From Chicago’s acclaimed Neo-Futurists comes a hilarious, and decidedly non-partisan jaunt through the lives of the 44 Commanders-in-Chief, from George Washington to Barack Obama. Using comedy, drama, dance, and music, five actors conjure a theatrical experience that recounts, in chronological order, the entire history of our country’s highest office. A timely primer on the context and significance of the impending vote, 44 Plays for 44 Presidents entertains as it educates, but don't worry — there’s no final exam at the end. Unless you count the election, that is.
“If Jon Stewart, the Smothers Brothers, and the League of Women Voters invaded the Hall of Presidents at Disney World, the results might resemble this play.”
—David C. Nichols, Los Angeles Times
