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).

Never in a million years did I think Joan Rivers would make ME blush. ME?!?!?! She was bawdy and entertaining -- I loved it!

This show put me to sleep. Joan is much more entertaining when she improvises on television. I couldn't help but wonder if this play was more about making Joan happy than the audience. Nice venue and always fun to go out at night - but a 'show to remember'? I think not.

A hilarious evening. Cheek cramps from laughing too hard and too much.

This show was awesome. Joan Rivers was humble, funny, candid, and incredibly entertaining. The rest of the cast was great too. I am so glad I did not miss this show.
