About this show

It was the first musical ever to win the Pulitzer Prize and is one of the brightest, most clever parodies ever written about American politics. Presidential candidate Wintergreen, whose major qualification is his presidential-sounding name, excites voters out of apathy and sweeps the country with his one-word platform - love. All have fallen under the sway of the campaign, including the Supreme Court, except one who has taken insult to his behavior. Will his own platform of love rescue this new president from impeachment when he appeals to the populace using his impending fatherhood? Pure lunacy invades "the Hill" with a beauty contest to find Miss White House, a passion for corn muffins, and a vice president who wanders the White House unrecognized by his own staff. Featuring music and lyrics by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin, and a book by George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind. Tina Landau directs, with choreography by Joey Pizzi and music direction by Tom Helm.
