A Snarky Look at Washington, D.C. Media

This play perfectly captures the inanities of the media and especially illustrates the other sphere in which Washington, DC operates.

The political satire is hilarious, but I really like how Blumenthal captured the camaraderie that exists in the press even when they're trying to scoop each other.

The cast, led by Richard Kind and Gates McFadden, is spectacular. Each actor brings their character to life and imbues them with personality and faults.

I had a terrific time listening to this play and highly recommend it if you're a fan of politics or especially if you hate them!
