Keegan Theatre Opens THE BEST MAN Tonight
The Keegan Theatre presents Gore Vidal's political corker The Best Man, opening tonight, January 30th at the Andrew Keegan Theatre in Washington, DC.
A play about power, ambition, political secrets, ruthlessness and the race for the presidency, 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.
Filled with Vidal's trademark verbal fire, this darkly satirical drama resonates today as an exploration of how political and personal agendas can change the destiny of a nation.
The Best Man runs through February 22, 2014. The press opening is now February 1 at 8:00pm. The Keegan Theatre is in its 17th season in Washington, DC.
