No matter where you go these days—the family dinner table, the office water cooler, Twitter—you'll inevitably find people talking (or, perhaps, ranting) about Hillary versus The Donald. This heated presidential election has gotten everyone riled up, so it's no wonder that it's inspiring theater artists, too. From a revival of a rarely done Shakespeare tragedy, to politically minded revues, to brand-new plays addressing our country's polarized state, there are many more theater choices than candidates. There's even a show written by a first-time playwright who happens to be a former State Senator! So there's no need to wait until Election Day; cast your vote for one of these political productions pronto.
In honor of the upcoming presidential election, we've rounded up shows that celebrate—or skewer—American politics.
