"This Is The Week That Is: The Election Special!"
Beginning later this month, 1812 Productions will begin showings of “This Is The Week That Is: The Election Special!” The show, “a stylistic marriage between The Carol Burnett Show and The Daily Show With Jon Stewart,” boasts a lively cast of characters as well as a brand new set and multi-media design. With new material and rewrites occurring nightly, the show will stay fresh and current, as well as encourage repeated viewings. Featuring the talent of Dave Jadico, Jennifer Childs, Don Montrey, Aime Kelly, Reuben Mitchell, Thomas E. Shatkin, and Alex Bechtel, this production is bound to bring the laughs.
In past productions, “This Is The Week That Is” has riffed on the recession, the ways in which Americans deal with war, and the Occupy movement. With all of the craziness happening in the media currently they have a lot to make fun of and parody.
“This Is The Week That Is: The Election Special!” will be running from September 27th through November 4th at the Plays & Players Theatre located at 1714 Delancey Street. There will be a handful of Previews with post show discussions before the show’s official opening date of October 3rd. Tickets run between $22 and $38 and can be purchased at www.1812productions.org or by calling 215-592-9560.
