Whatever It Takes To Win
by John Dempsey & Dana P. Rowe
When a popular presidential candidate dies in his mistress’s arms, his ambitious wife, Violet, immediately declares that if she can’t be the wife of the president, then she’ll be the mother of the president… and thrusts their lackluster son Cal into the spotlight in Dempsey and Rowe’s outrageous musical comedy The Fix. With the help of her strategic brother-in-law, Violet transforms her son into the perfect citizen and ideal politician. Together, they create one of the most dysfunctional, yet brutally entertaining, almost-first families.
With a rock-laced, eclectic score and scandalous lyrics, the team behind The Witches of Eastwick and Brother Russia skewers the American bureaucratic machine. It’s The Manchurian Candidate meets Caligula, with a voice uniquely its own; The Fix is a darkly brilliant, over-the-top, audaciously fun ride through the shenanigans of political elections.
“[A] wicked fun, luridly overblown comedy of lethally bad manners.” —The Washington Post
The Fix has adult language, sexual content, drug use and smoking. The production will use theatrical haze, strobe lights and have gunshots.
Running time is approximately 2 hours and 10 minutes, plus one 15 minute intermission.
The Fix is sponsored by Mike Blank.
