"West Wing Follies" -- By Burton Bumgarner
Produced by special arrangement with Eldridge Publishing Co.
Here is a hysterical, non-partisan look at our fearless (and not so fearless) U.S. Presidents, their achievements, their failures, and their idiosyncrasies. This play offers a flexible, kazoo-playing cast the opportunity to portray history as never before! From newscasts, game shows, reality TV, talk shows, beach movies, the Grand Ol' Opry, and Shakespeare soliloquies, a cast of 12 actors presents all of the United States Presidents in twenty brief scenes. Former Presidents interview for jobs, advertise used cars, head to Fort Lauderdale for spring break, and play a game called "Gilded-Age Jeopardy." James Buchanan is interrogated by "Law and Order" type cops; Woodrow Wilson sings a ballad about his attempt to start the League of Nations; and Teddy Roosevelt and William Howard Taft are elementary school students hauled into the principal's office for unruly behavior.
