About the show

1h 30m | Ends Sep 28 | The PIT Loft (Chelsea)

The energetic, two-woman theater company Liv & Mags presents a new comedy, the possibly true, entirely fabricated, probably wrong story of Watergate as told by two girls who don’t know what happened. More…

Based off of the 5 things they think they know about the Watergate debacle, this wacky play attempts to retell the story of this Great American Scandal. Armed with their joint ignorance, original musical numbers, and plenty of costume changes, these ladies are here to educate you, sort of.
