A darkly cynical drama about party compromise, complete with last-minute backroom deal-making, this revival of Gore Vidal's 1960 hit The Best Man is as timely and topical as ever. This inside look at the double- and triple-crossing that occurs during a presidential race tells the story of two men battling for the nomination, both of whom must choose between mudslinging and campaigning on the issues. The show's original Broadway production was nominated for six Tony Awards. Filled with Vidal's trademark verbal fire, this seminal political work, featuring Artistic Director Mark A. Rhea and Keegan company member Colin A. Smith, resonates as an exploration of how political and personal agendas can change the destiny of a nation. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Brutal and hilarious, August: Osage County shook audiences to their core when it first exploded onto the American stage. A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you’ve got a play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark underbelly of the modern American family.
“We are thrilled to present the first homegrown production of this amazing play, especially coming off of the record sellout run of Spring Awakening. This is an exciting time for Keegan audiences, indeed – and it is particularly fitting for us to present August: Osage County as the finale to our 15th Anniversary season,” says Mark A. Rhea, producing artistic director of Keegan Theatre. “This is the type of work that set the tone for Keegan’s reputation, and so it is very rewarding to end this incredibly successful season with such a powerhouse play. We have assembled an intensely talented and dedicated ensemble to bring these characters to life – I think audiences are going to be blown away experiencing this masterpiece in the intimate Church Street setting.”
