Broadway’s all-star blockbuster just got starrier! Cybill Shepherd, John Stamos and Kristin Davis join Tony® winners James Earl Jones, John Larroquette and Angela Lansbury (through July 22nd) in Broadway’s “RED, WHITE AND BLUE MUST-SEE HIT!” –Fox 5 News. A play about power, ambition, political secrets, ruthlessness and the race for the presidency, Gore Vidal’s The Best Man is set at the national convention where two candidates are vying for their party¹s nomination during the primary season. It's an inside look at the dirt-digging, double-dealing, triple-crossing chicanery of presidential electioneering…and what could be more fun in a Presidential campaign season than these theatrical fireworks.
The award winning creative team behind the scenes includes director Michael Wilson (Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award for Horton Foote’s Orphans), Tony Award winner designers Derek McLane (set) and Ken Posner (lighting) and this year’s Theatre Hall of Fame inductee, the legendary Ann Roth (costume design).
This marks the first major revival of Gore Vidal’s The Best Man since it received a Tony Award nomination and won the Drama Desk Award and Outer Critics Circle in 2000.
Cast Members: James Earl Jones, John Larroquette, Cybill Shepherd, John Stamos, Kristin Davis, Jefferson Mays, Mark Plum and Angela Lansbury
