The Public Theater and London's National Theatre will present a staged reading of Nicolas Kent's All the President's Men? on May 11 at Town Hall.

Responding to current events, the new work looks at the fight between Senate Republicans and Democrats over the key cabinet members who will lead the Trump administration's policy on everything from Russia to civil rights, healthcare to climate change. The play uses verbatim testimony from the hearings of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, EPA Director Scott Pruitt, and United States Secretary of Health and Human Services director Dr. Tom Price.

The cast includes Ellen Burstyn (Senator Elizabeth Warren), Staceyann Chin (Senator Mazie K. Hirono), David Costabile (Tom Price, Senator Chris Coons), Aasif Mandvi (Scott Pruitt, Senator Todd Young), Joe Morton (Senator Benjamin L. Cardin, Senator James M. Inhofe, Senator Patrick J. Leahy), Denis O'Hare (Senator Orrin Hatch, Senator Lindsey Graham), David Remnick (Al Franken), and Ron Rifkin (Senator Bernard Sanders).
