The five-person cast provides 2-hours of laughter and enjoyment as they satirize our nation's most senior officials, performing comedic lyrics to well-known songs in the very personas they mock. Timely and bipartisan, no US or world leader is safe from the entertaining lampooning that makes...More

The humor is intended for adults who have a grasp of current political affairs.
Are there any snacks or drinks available in the lobby prior to the show?
