Power, ambition, and secrecy are in the air—it must be election season. Set at the national convention in Philadelphia, Gore Vidal’s The Best Man takes you into the back rooms and hotel suites where two candidates are vying for their party’s nomination. It’s your inside look at the dirt-digging, double-dealing, triple-crossing deception of presidential electioneering...and what could be more fun at the start of a Presidential campaign season! However, leave your party affiliation at the door; The Best Man plays no favorites as theatrical fireworks are lobbed from both sides.
