POTUS, Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass Are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive

Written by Selina Fillinger

Directed by Julia Houck

One four-letter word is about to rock 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. When the President unwittingly spins a PR nightmare into a global crisis, the seven brilliant and beleaguered women he relies upon most risk life, liberty and the pursuit of sanity to keep the commander-in-chief out of trouble. Selina Fillinger’s brilliant, all female farce took Broadway by storm in a production that earned three 2022 Tony nominations. In this election season, join us a for well-needed laugh.
