"44 Plays for 44 Presidents"

By Andrew Bayiates, Sean Benjamin, Genevra Gallo- Bayiates, Chloë Johnston, and Karen Weinberg

Directed by Jennifer Uphoff Gray

From Chicago’s acclaimed Neo-Futurists comes a hilarious, and decidedly non-partisan jaunt through the lives of the 44 Commanders-in-Chief, from George Washington to Barack Obama. Using comedy, drama, dance, and music, five actors conjure a theatrical experience that recounts, in chronological order, the entire history of our country’s highest office. A timely primer on the context and significance of the impending vote, 44 Plays for 44 Presidents entertains as it educates, but don't worry — there’s no final exam at the end. Unless you count the election, that is.
