About this show

Based on Gary Ross's 1993 Oscar-nominated White House comedy, Dave tells the story of high school teacher (and presidential lookalike) Dave Kovic, who's hired by the Secret Service as a stand-in for the commander in chief. When the president falls ill under less than "presidential" circumstances, Dave is thrust into the Oval Office to avoid a national scandal and must find a way to gain the trust and love of the American people…and the first lady. Tina Landau (SpongeBob SquarePants on Broadway) directs this musical, with a book by the late Thomas Meehan and Nell Benjamin, lyrics by Benjamin, and music by Tom Kitt.
