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

The actors and actresses were very good. Some great voices. Sometimes the band drowned out some singers (particularly the red-haired actor). The biggest issue was just that there was no story line to follow (it was a series of short biographies) so it dragged a bit and it was only an hour and a half show or so. It was entertaining, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it.
Directed by Shirley Serotsky, Working features a stellar cast of 14, including Sherry Berg, Priscilla Cuellar, Tia Dolet, Tina Ghandchilar, Mike Kozemchak, John Loughney, Jane Petkofsky, Meredith Richard, Jennifer Richter, Manuel Ayala Sapelli, Dan Sonntag, RaMond Thomas, Mick Tinder, and Dan Van Why.
