Lewis & Clark College musical theatre workshop will present an evening of satire about American politics from the 1930’s to the present day with songs from musicals including “Mr. President” by Irving Berlin to political comedy written in the past ten years. We will explore the role of power and money in the making of a politician through song and dance. No one escapes scrutiny in this fun evening which will be a post-mortum on the Presidential election of November 6.
