The Best Man
By Gore Vidal
Directed by Nancy Ernst
Gore Vidal’s “The Best Man” will close the season. William Russell, the ex-Secretary of State is a wit and scholar with high liberal principles, beloved by intellectuals and suspected by practical politicians. Joseph Cantwell is a ruthless and hard-driving young man, a dirty fighter who will let no scruples stand in the way of his ambitions. Arthur Hosckstader, is the ex-president who loves politics for its own sake; and a man who admires arough-and-tumble battler more than a chivalrous one, is determined to have the final say in the selection of his party’s candidate. This all provides the perfect framework for vivid scenes, as Vidal contrasts the minds, emotions and battling spirits of a two presidential candidates, and two political parties. What an incredible offering for an election year!
