The Politician

A crisis is a terrible thing to waste.

Peter Peters returns as a ruthless politician in a full-length show that combines last year’s Fringe hit The Pundit with its thrilling sequel. “Deflates its target with a sharp satiric pin,” said The Washington Post of last year’s sold-out run.

Written by John Feffer

Directed by Doug Krehbel

REVIEWS OF THE POLITICIAN

Five stars and Best of Fringe from DC Metro Theater Arts

DC Broadway World calls The Politician a brilliant mix of theater and politics. “Go, just go….”

Hill Rag calls The Politician “another highly satisfying satire that condemns the Beltway life while resting snugly inside of it” with “a fantastic ensemble cast, whose members change roles more often than people in Washington change opinion.”

Women Around Town says “The Politician shows us what happens when the cameras stop rolling. You’ll never watch a talking head again without thinking of this play. If you missed last year’s The Pundit, don’t miss The Politician.”

Washington Speaks: The Politician “scores a big win.”
