“THE WEST WING MEETS SOUTH PARK”
David Mamet’s fiendishly funny, over-the-top new comedy NOVEMBER, fresh from its smash-hit success on Broadway, offers no mercy in its satirical stab at American politics. Meet President Charles Smith, the most corrupt, inept buffoon ever to sit in the Oval Office. It’s the final days of his bid for a second term, but the country is a mess and his poll numbers are “lower than Gandhi’s cholesterol.” Toss in a lesbian speechwriter longing to marry her sweetheart on national television, a cynical chief of staff, Thanksgiving turkeys awaiting pardon, and enough shady backroom scheming that would make even the most hardened con man blush, and you’ve got another Mamet masterpiece.
