The Obama Monologues

More

Didn't get enough of the 2008 campaign? Want to hear more about President Obama's meteoric rise to the White House? Are you a fan of theater?

Obamanologues (pron. Obama-na-logues, as opposed to Oba-monologues) will open September 25 and run through October 11 at the Flashpoint Theater in DC. The show is comprised of 11 chronological monologues, presenting different perspectives on the president and his White House ascension. From promotional materials:

The monologues are presented in styles ranging from conversational to rebellious to scholarly, and aim to depict some of the emotions and behaviors displayed by people in living rooms, classrooms, bus stops, and churches all around the country. Each monologue depicts a distinct moment during the election season and shares heartfelt experiences of euphoria and disappointment, hoping and wishing, anger and frustration, pride and joy, debating and anticipating.

Writer and director Rickie Peete says he "wanted Obamanologues to present the audience with an opportunity to remember and reflect on the 2008 election season in a way that's only possible with the passage of time."

Pay-what-you-can previews will be held September 23 and 24.
