This aptly timed world premiere satire by Jon Robin Baitz follows a tailor who is struggling to serve a real estate tycoon/reality TV star who decides to run for president—and actually becomes a major party's nominee. It won't take audiences to use their imagination much as the election spirals out of control, forcing both the tailor and his apprentice to rethink their roles as image-makers for the man. As the theater is promoting it, this show "offers a unique opportunity for a play to participate in our nation’s political discourse as it unfolds."
