Frighteningly funny...it falls to director Thomas Kail and his diamond-cut cast to make this dry subject enthralling and horrifying.
Variety, Dry Powder review, 2016Buy Tickets
Whoever said that money and politics went hand in hand? That's the question at the heart of Sarah Burgess' blisteringly funny new comedy drama that takes aim at the heart of the American political establishment. Directed by Thomas Kail (Hamilton), Kings follows the exploits of a lobbyist who suffers no fools. If they can't win, maintain and use their power, they are beneath her. So imagine her consternation when she is saddled with one Representative Sydney Millsap, a very green politician who is in the throes of naive, newly elected optimism. But the knives come out when Millsap proves to be a formidable person in her own right - and the battle of wills commences. Faced with the choice of backing a system run on money and influence, or the idealist principles of Millsap, Kate finds herself in an impossible position! Who will she choose to support?
Sarah Burgess is no stranger to satirizing the heart of the American establishment; her 2016 comedy Dry Powder was set in the high-stakes world of investment banking. A sharp work about the people who both prop up, and mercilessly exploit, the US economy, Dry Powder follows a managing director who must race to save his company in the aftermath of a huge PR disaster. He stars opposite Emmy and Golden Globe winner Claire Danes (Homeland, Pygmalion) and five-time Emmy winner Hank Azaria, who's best known for voicing a multitude of characters on The Simpsons.
