What I liked

Truly enjoyable, fun piece of theatre!

What I didn't like

Honestly, it could have been longer.

My overall impression

As expressed to me after the show, “History, Death, Feminism, and Funny, what more could you ask for?!?” I could not agree more. This tongue- and- cheek, historical satire, just feels good in today’s political climate. Much of that comes from the wonderful writing & acting of Corinne Mestemacher, writer, producer, and Martha Jefferson of the piece.
Megan Barker (Deb), Jaime Lucas (Sam Adams), and Laura Lee Walsh (Dolley), all deliver laugh out loud performances, and of course, I would be amiss if I did not mention the name sake of the performance Katie Stevens, Martha Washington, who had me believing, “maybe our first Fist Lady really did kill a guy…?”
The show is directed by Matt Ritchey, and if you don’t already know by now, everything he does is brilliant. Take my advice, buy a ticket and go see this one!
