Gore Vidal's The Best Man is about the race to the presidency, as two front-runners vie for their party's nomination in the midst of back stabbing, double-crossing, dirty-dealing and all the games politicians play. The political intrigues rampant in this mid 20th century setting may seem strangely similar to the political intrigues of the present day. Vidal's insights still resonate, whether in Tea Party true-believer pressure or birth control controversies. It's a vivid snapshot of American political life a half-century ago that shows both how much and how little has changed. A roller coaster ride of twists and turns which make for a most entertaining and fun night of theater.

"Timeless, exciting and archly delicious." - Associated Press
