Vidal's best play, with surprises, reversals, plentiful wit, worldly wisdom and juicy roles for all concerned!


Closed 9 Sep 2012

A play about power, ambition, political secrets, ruthlessness and the race for the presidency, Gore Vidal’s The Best Man is set at the national convention where two candidates are vying for their party’s nomination during the primary season.

It's an inside look at the dirt-digging, double-dealing, triple-crossing chicanery of presidential electioneering…and what could be more fun in a Presidential campaign season than these theatrical fireworks.
