This was so funny, and so accurate it had me in tears both in laughter and in fear for our country. ... full review

A thoroughly delightful send-up of the classless Trump family. Fun and funny, with some amazing singing by Lisa St. Lou, and cool tunes by Lisa and Tor Hyams.... full review

Solid & creative, really excellent performances. Maybe the piano could be a bit softer so audience could hear all the cleverness in the lyrics.... full review

The 2nd Annual Trump Family Special was an extremely clever and pointed parody of a 'family special' featuring our negligible first family.

Of course, the head of the clan isn’t present for this showcase, but does make his appearing while tweeting how this program is very good for the country, and for his assets! This political satire with book and lyrics by Daniel Salles with music and ad... full review
