This was a preview show which was explained as a way for the Brave New Workshop to test ideas and vignettes out on the audience to see what goes over well. Apparently, for any show, they write four times as many scenes as will be used in the final...continued

An excellent show, with some of the segments.... beyond excellent (what would that be called?)
This is the show you wish every bonehead relative and neighbor could see.

Irreverent and hilarious humor. Just what we need to cope when we are all bombarded with political messages day and night. Such a fun night out.

The usual bunch o' fun from this amazing troupe. Some really funny stuff, and I can't wait to see what goes into the finalized show. I'll probably see this a few more times over the coming months. Only one bit of feedback: even if it's coming...continued

Excellent! Unbelievably up to the minute details about all the 'jokers' in this year's presidential landscape, --I learned alot! Who new, we'd been served so many great gay presidents??? "Obama's" hoodie image is forever ingrained. "Mitt's" ...continued

Incisive, funny, smart, and just what America needs! Everybody (and every party!) is fair game in this spoof, skewering, and parody of our gonzo politics. Highly recommended.

This show was so funny that we laughed until we cried!! My face hurt so bad from laughing so hard.
The cast was spectacular. I liked the points of view from all sides. Made really good points with a terrific sense of humor. I want to see it again...continued

We were told in the beginning that this was a preview showing and that some of the skits would not make it to the final. This is good. Some of the skits just left me flat. I also felt that they could have evened things out a bit more. Romney...continued

I liked it, but didn't love it. skits are just like SNL, they are hit and miss. Some parts of the show are really fun, others not so much. I wish they would do more with props, set changes, and use of video (technology).

This is a series of skits all generally related to our current political scene. It was very good. While still a work in progress (I attended a preview) the bits were very good with few exceptions. The cast was talented and the venue quite nice...continued

This was probably my least favorite Brave New Workshop show. Not being savvy in politics, I found that I missed a lot of the jokes in this show. Also, I thought a lot of the skits were going strong but then ended abruptly and randomly. But per BNW...continued

Witty, Sacrilegious, surprisingly informed, no prisoners taken. I saw the pre-lims and they have taken the best of what worked and continue to add new material as the political landscape changes...Can hardly wait to see what they are going to do...continued

This production was hilarious. It certainly didn't disappoint in the entertainment factor. I can hardly wait for the Christmas show!

Troupe was great. Political humor is their specialty and this show was timely and well written and acted. Very funny. They even included a current event that happened one day earlier!

A typical irreverent BNW take on the current election cycle. It had been way too many years since we'd been to a BNW show. It was as good as ever. Good venue, too.

We enjoyed the performance. The performers were highly skilled with comedy and most of the script was quite humorous. Occasionally, it was difficult to clearly hear some of the words when the performers spoke too quickly.

A show of political satire, the cast makes fun of both Romney and Obama. Different skits take a comical look at how we view the candidates and issues.
