Geffen Playhouse has announced the full cast for its Los Angeles premiere of the three-time Tony Award-nominated play POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass Are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive, written by Selina Fillinger (Apple TV+’s The Morning Show) and directed by Jennifer Chambers.
The cast includes Ito Aghayere (Bernhardt/Hamlet) as Chris; Maria Bello (Beef) as Bernadette; Alexandra Billings (Transparent) as Margaret; Lauren Blumenfeld (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) as Stephanie; Shannon Cochran (A Doll’s House, Part 2) as Harriet; Jane Levy (Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist) as Dusty; and Elizabeth Rodriguez (Orange Is the New Black) as Jean.
A derogatory comment, a summit gone awry, an anal abscess—it’s a bad day at the White House. When the President unwittingly spins a PR nightmare into a global crisis, it inevitably falls on the seven women he relies on most to clean up the mess. Take a raucous romp through the halls of the West Wing in a riotous and irreverent farce about the men who hold the power vs. the women who get the job done.
Previews for POTUS begin Wednesday, January 17, 2024, in the Gil Cates Theater at Geffen Playhouse. Opening night is Thursday, January 25, 2024. Tickets currently priced at $30.00 – $129.00. Available by phone at 310.208.2028 or online.
