September – November 2012

EVENT: “November”    by David Mamet    Directed by Scott Zigler.

DESCRIPTION: Just in time for the 2012 election, David Mamet’s fiendishly funny “November” comes to the Taper.  It’s a few days before a presidential election and incumbent Charles Smith is in for a rough month  — his campaign funds are running out, his poll numbers are “lower than Gandhi’s cholesterol” and the sofa needs to be reupholstered … all in all, it looks like the Thanksgiving turkey will have a better holiday season.  But although his speechwriter seems to have defected, his chief of staff has all but given up and his wife is planning for her post-White House life, Charles isn’t ready to throw in the towel quite yet.
