Description

From a new team of writers comes a hard-edged, hard-boiled commentary on the American political machine. Part tabloid, part “The Manchurian Candidate,” The Fix is a totally original biting satire ripped from the headlines of today, yesterday and most likely tomorrow. A popular presidential candidate is dead, and his wife, who has power on the brain, thrusts her son into the political spotlight. Her maniacal scheming is matched only by that of her crippled brother-in-law, who will stop at nothing to see the boy elected. Together, the three of them make up one of the most dysfunctional almost-first families this side of real-life Washington politics.

With a driving, riveting score by John Dempsey and Dana P. Rowe (The Witches of Eastwick), The Fix is a powerful, nightmarish, hysterical roller coaster of a musical.

Directed by Randy Brenner

Musical direction by Darryl Archibald

Choreography by Heather Castillo
