Dan Oster is Bill Clinton in PRESIDENT HILLARY
In an age of political gridlock, we’re at least moving forward on one important front: Dan Oster is playing Bill Clinton, and you can see him do it every Thursday night in Hollywood.
President Hillary, now playing at Second City Hollywood, is set in January 2017, in the first 24 hours of Hillary Clinton’s presidency, as she takes on China, climate change, Bill, Chelsea, and the ghost of Eleanor Roosevelt! See these events now a full 27 months before they come to pass!
The show is playing every Thursday at 8pm through December 18th (with the exception of Thanksgiving because America). Tickets are $10 and available on the Second City website. Also $5 discount tickets are available for many nights on Goldstar.
President Hillary stars the very talented Molly Erdman as Hillary with Josh Callahan, Julian Clark, Andy Cobb, Rachna Khatau, Jessie Sherman, Bobby Huynh and, as previously discussed, Lost Moon Radio’s own Dan Oster. It’s written by Marc Warzecha & Andy Cobb and directed by Marc Warzecha, with music by Michael Pollock. The musical director is Ben Bromfield and the assistant director and choreographer is Rani O’Brien.
Honestly, we were as excited for the new Ken Burns series as anybody, but this seems … indulgent?
After 146 years, we finally have a Little Women the way it was meant to be seen: live on stage in Hollywood with Lauren Flans playing Jo March.
WOMEN is the New York hit that won Best Comedy at this year’s Hollywood Fringe Festival and is now returning to The Asylum Theatre for a limited run. This fast paced comedy is a mash-up of Louisa May Alcott’s classic Little Women and HBO’s critically acclaimed Girls, delivering a smartly crafted and hilarious 55-minute show.
The show opens on Sept.5th and tickets are $15: http://womentheshow.com/. (There’s also a preview on Thursday, Sept.4th, to which you can obtain half-price $7.50 tickets with the code “preview”: http://bit.ly/bethdies)
Note: The show is sure to be excellent every night, but die-hard Lauren Flans fans (“flans”) should note that she will not be appearing in the 9/13 and 9/27 performances.
WOMEN is written by Chiara Atik, based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott, and directed by Stephanie Ward. In addition to Lauren, the cast features Erika Rankin, Jacquie Walters, Brigitte Valdez, Chris Farrah, Clayton Farris, Joseph Patrick O’Malley, Ben Moroski, and J.B. Waterman. Plus lighting design by Lost Moon Radio’s own Brandon Baruch!
