The Geffen Playhouse presents the American premiere of Yes, Prime Minister, the uproarious political satire fresh from an acclaimed West End run. Join Prime Minister Jim Hacker and his scheming Cabinet Secretary as they try to survive a chaotic weekend that teeters on the edge of catastrophe. With the entire nation on the brink of financial ruin, will the PM and his motley team of advisors resort to a morally dubious deal with the Foreign Minister of Kumranistan in order to avert potential calamity? Written by Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn, creators of the 1980s BBC sitcom upon which the play is based, Yes, Prime Minister features a talented cast of stage and screen stars including Michael McKean (This Is Spinal Tap), Tony Award winner Jefferson Mays (Broadway's The Best Man) and Brian George (Seinfeld, The Big Bang Theory).

I've been to three of the five shows so far and Female of the Species is definitely worth seeing. I recommend purchasing the series, it is nice to have consistentcy and be a part of the local theater. I just think next time it would be worth waiting to see the shows once they are more polished vs. during previews.

In my 30 years of theater going, I think this is the first time I left a play at intermission, having no idea what was going on. I hated it. It was confusing. The actors talked way to fast. It was hard to comprehend. People were leaving during the first half. That was terrible. I hope the other plays are going to be better...

Didn't like it. Glad I didn't pay full price for the tickets. Can't win 'em all.

Having invested in tickets for the whole season at the Geffen, I hope this play is just a temporary glitch and not indicative of the rest of the season. I thought this play started off well enough albeit in a very Hollywood way but then went rapidly downhill. I have seen Matthew Modine in a number of excellent movie roles and I hope to see him in more. However, I don't think this play will do much for his career.

September 8-October 18, 2009: Matthew Modine Saves the Alpacas
Matthew Modine stars as Matthew Modine in this rollicking parody of celebrity activism. It’s been decades since Modine’s eighties heartthrob days. So, how can he get back into the limelight? He needs… a Cause. Join Matthew and a comical cast on this world premiere romp through the ridiculous, the hilarious and the utterly offensive.
November 10-December 20, 2009: Equivocation
In a world where history is told by the winner, comes a new play about the night England’s infamous Gunpowder Plot was foiled. For hundreds of years, this event has been celebrated as Guy Fawkes Day, but it’s clear there is no way the night could have unfolded the way the Crown claimed. So, without Fox News at his disposal, how does King James turn fiction into fact? He hires the world’s greatest playwright. Enter William Shakespeare. With the weight of history on their shoulders, Shakespeare and his winsome troupe struggle to dramatize the King’s absurd account without losing their integrity - or their heads. Featuring playful allusions to some of the Bard’s greatest works, Equivocation is a high-stakes tale where history meets fiction and fiction meets its match.
February 2-March 14, 2010: The Female of the Species
Academy Award winner Annette Bening returns to the Geffen Playhouse in this wildly wicked farce. Loosely inspired by a real-life incident involving feminist philosopher Germaine Greer, The Female of the Species tells the story of Margot Mason – famed auteur of such influential works as "Madame Ovary," "Love and Other Four Letter Words" and "The Complete Insignificance of Male Sexuality" – who has retreated to her country home to pen her next masterpiece.
Problem is, nothing's coming. Nothing, that is, except for a young former student who is intent on taking Margot hostage as punishment for her mixed message ideology. Enter Margot's overlooked daughter, her simplistic son-in-law, her longtime publisher and a disgruntled cab driver ... and all of a sudden a simple kidnapping turns into a battle over who can throw the first punch and get the last word.
April 13-May 23, 2010: Nightmare Alley
Step into Nightmare Alley and enter the titillating world of carnies, cons and clairvoyants. With a score as wild as a funhouse and as evocative as a beautiful tightrope walker, this world premiere musical tells the tale of a young carnie couple who tempt the fickle hand of fate. Based on the darkly evocative 1946 William Lindsay Gresham novel of the same name, Nightmare Alley is a night at the theater full of special effects, wondrous feats and enough spirit to make believers of us all. But remember, here, things are never as they seem.
June 27-August 8, 2010: Thurgood
Witness one of America’s greatest stories told from the stage by one of our greatest story tellers. Tony Award Winner, Emmy Award Winner and Oscar Nominee Laurence Fishburne transforms into Thurgood Marshall to tell the triumphant story of how a boy from the backstreets of Baltimore changed history. From arguing the 1954 landmark case Brown v. Board of Education to becoming the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, Thurgood Marshall’s tenacious advocacy broke open the civil rights movement, paving the way for the young African-American leaders of our future.
Fishburne’s acclaimed Broadway performance of Thurgood earned him a Drama Desk Award and an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Solo Performance, as well as a Tony nomination for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play.
