“The Best Man” crackles with the smart lines and situations inherent to the work of Gore Vidal. The political intrigues rampant in Vidal’s 1960 setting are strangely similar to the political intrigues of the present day. This darkly satirical drama finds two presidential contenders seeking the endorsement of an aging ex-president and explores how personal agendas can change the course of a nation’s destiny. “Gore Vidal’s ‘The Best Man’ makes you wish that Vidal were writing the dialogue for the presidential debates. It brings to the backstabbing world of campaigning the bright verbal fire that ‘All About Eve’ and ‘Sweet Smell of Success’ brought to the backstabbing worlds of show business and journalism.” – The New York Times "The Best Man" is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
