BWW Review: New York City Center Presents EVITA In A Time When News Commentators Outs Photo BWW Review: New York City Center Presents EVITA In A Time When News Commentators Outshine Newsmakers
by Michael Dale - Nov 17, 2019

Great comedy is often the byproduct of political scandal and those who humorously comment on the news often overshadow the newsmakers themselves.  You might say that more Americans learned about the controversies of Presidents Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon from watching The Smothers Brothers and Mort Saul, rather than Walter Cronkite.  For over forty years our perceptions of world leaders have been defined more by the impersonations seen on Saturday Night Live than by actual news clips.  And today there are a multitude of television hosts combining comedy with deep analysis and investigative journalism to editorialize on the goings-on of the current administration.
