I'm a tough critic, so 5 stars is unusual for me. But this piece was amazing!! Acting was spot on! Set Design was interesting. Lighting was well. Great Job Stage Left!!!!!

I really liked the show. The performances were great. "Steve" was a real stand-out for me. I'll definitely see more shows at Wit.

Quotes & Highlights

Farragut North is Jeff recommended, and Chicago Magazine listed it as one of their five hot plays to see over Labor Day Weekend.
Read an "interview ": playwright Beau Willimon.


Stephen Bellamy is a wunderkind press secretary who has built a career that men twice his age would envy. During a tight presidential primary race, Stephen’s meteoric rise falls prey to the backroom politics of more seasoned operatives. Farragut North is a fast-paced drama about the lust for power and the costs one will endure to achieve it.
