October 21 - 23, 2010: The Midterm Shuffle
At the half-way point in the first (or only?) Obama Administration, The Thalia Follies takes satirical and musical stock of where things stand. What will the next Senate and House look like? What's become of "Yes, We Can!" or "Change We Can Believe In?" Which way are things headed? Is there hope? Guest Star: Jonathan Hadary
