POTUS or Behind Every Great Dumbass are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive
By Selina Fillinger
Directed by Lisa Rubin
A Segal Centre production

A #$@!% GOOD TIME!
One four-letter word is about to rock the White House! When the President unwittingly spins a PR nightmare into a global crisis, the brilliant and beleaguered women he relies upon most risk life, liberty, and the pursuit of sanity to keep the commander-in-chief out of trouble. Veep meets House of Cards in this uproarious, side-splitting, and riotous comedy featuring seven high-flying and audacious performances!

“I am woman, hear me roar — with laughter.” – Variety

POTUS is a heck of a good time and a hell of a laugh.” – Theatrely

“The next best thing to Veep has arrived.”The Washington Post

“POTUS” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com”
