WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Neo-Futurists present the return of their hit 43 Plays for 43 Presidents at The Neo-Futurarium for two nights only to celebrate the upcoming election... with a new ending and a few new plays in-between! The piece is a chronological, biographical survey of the lives and presidencies of each of the 42 men who have held the office to date, with a company of performers portraying both their mistakes and successes. The scenes shift frequently between the comic and the tragic, beginning with George Washington, continuing through the grim onset of the Civil War, moving through a Nixon dance number, and arriving at a WWF-style wrestling match of the 2000 election. Conceived by Andy Bayiates. Written and directed by: Andy Bayiates, Sean Benjamin, Genevra Gallo, Chloë Johnston and Karen Weinberg. Performed by: Andy Bayiates, Sean Benjamin, Genevra Gallo, Chloë Johnston and Noelle Krimm.
