IN POLITICS, THE LESS YOU KNOW, THE HIGHER YOU'LL GO!
JAN 24–FEB 18, 2018
At once a razor-sharp satire and an inspirational tribute to democrazy, The Outsider is a timely and hilarious send-up of modern American politics. Ned Newley, the ultimate policy wonk, is unexpectedly thrust into the position of governor amid a political scandal in Vermont. With the threat of a special election, Ned appears remarkably terrified before the media's glaring spotlight and seems destined to fail. But the political guru Arthur Vance sees things a little differently: Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office. Unless the public is looking for...the worst candidate to ever run for office!
