This clever and pointed satire exposes the steamy underbelly of American political corruption.
The topical subject of corruption in politics is poked at masterfully with a driving, riveting rock score by John Dempsey
and Dana P. Rowe in THE FIX, a biting, dark, and laugh-out-loud funny satire of the
American political scene, in particular of the presidential election
process, focusing on
a dynasty in the making.
The show originally opened at London's Donmar Warehouse in 1997 and was nominated for four Olivier awards.
The show hits the ground running as it opens with the scandalous and sparsely dressed death of Presidential shoo-in Senator Reed Chandler. Senator Reed's wife, Violet, and brother Grahame, are dreadfully woeful of his passing. Not only did they lose a husband and a brother but the inevitable perks his occupation of the oval office would have afforded them. Violet and Grahame set their sights on the pot smoking son who may show promise with the right polish. Young Cal Chandler can't even fathom the twists and turns and lows -- and heavy drug-induced highs -- this political roller coaster his mother and uncle are strapping him to will take. All he can do is hold on and hope for the best.
A powerful, nightmarish, and hysterical time at the theater, THE FIX has a gripping presence that will leave audiences breathless. If your group is looking for a piece that revels in uniqueness and intelligence, THE FIX is a perfect choice for you and your patrons!
