Here’s another fantastically positive review of “November” from Showbiz Radio!
Dominion Stage is giving us big boy talent in a close and intimate setting at an affordable cost. The reward is a splendid evening of laughter and something to laugh about the next day…I can, in all honesty, declare that Dominion Stage has presented a bold, but very funny and really timely, assessment of electoral politics circa 2012. I will go so far as to offer a Depends alert for those of a certain age. Let’s give November a full 5 Depends on the plotzing scale.

It’s November in a Presidential election year, and incumbent Charles Smith’s chances for reelection are looking grim. Approval ratings are down, his money’s running out, and nuclear war might be imminent. Though his staff has thrown in the towel and his wife has begun to prepare for her post-White House life, Chuck isn’t ready to give up just yet. Amidst the biggest fight of his political career, the President has to find time to pardon a couple of turkeys — saving them from the slaughter before Thanksgiving — and this simple PR event inspires Smith to risk it all in attempt to win back public support. With Mamet’s characteristic no-holds-barred style, November is a scathingly hilarious take on the state of America today and the lengths to which people will go to win.
