Pledge Allegiance to POTUS.

Selina Fillinger’s brilliant, all-female farce took Broadway by storm in a star-studded production that earned three 2022 Tony nominations. The fifth entry in our exciting Left of Center Series (following 2019’s A Steady Rain, 2021’s I’ll Eat You Last, 2022’s The Little Dog Laughed, and 2023’s Misery), POTUS will be directed by guest artist Lyn Cramer, Endowed Professor of Dance in the School of Musical Theater, and recipient of the Rothbaum Presidential Professor of Excellence in the Arts by the Weitzenhoffer Family College of Fine Arts at the University of Oklahoma.

One four-letter word is about to rock 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. When the President unwittingly spins a PR nightmare into a global crisis, the seven brilliant and beleaguered women he relies upon most risk life, liberty, and the pursuit of sanity to keep the commander-in-chief out of trouble.

Mature Audiences.

“A broad, zany, old-school comedy… You can feel how hungry the spectators are to laugh together, and they get to do it often in this silly, fast-paced lark.” – TimeOut NY
“Sly wit and inspired goofiness.” – The New York Sun
