September 14th - October 7th
for Curtain Up 2017... 



by Sinclair Lewis
adapted by Tony Taccone and Bennett S. Cohen

Directed by
Kurt Schneiderman*
Starring Dennis Keefe, Christopher Standart*,
and many others

Subversive Theatre is proud to kick off our 15th season of radical theatre with this urgently needed protest play adapted from Sinclair Lewis' prophetic 1935 Novel about a huckster politician who buys the presidential election and proceeds to turn America into a fascist dictatorship... see any modern parallels?

A wild mix of campy farce with dystopian horror, this in-your-face extravaganza offers a chilling warning that is needed now more than ever!
