About the show

This up-to-the minute musical satire of Trump's presidency and today's red, white, and orange America returns with its 'Fire and Fury Edition' edition. More…

'Me the People' takes aim at the self-dealing, topsy-turvy presidency of Donald J. Trump. His crony cabinet, his far-right Supreme Court, White House grifters Ivanka and Jared—no one is spared. It also offers a comic diagnosis from Sigmund Freud and an earful from Hillary Clinton. Note: In addition to the ticket price, there's a two-drink minimum per person.

Excruciating, Unintelligible, Indulgent, Embarrassing

See it if The only saving grace of this mess is the actors' talent which scramble to make anything out of unintelligible plot and lyrics.

Don't see it if you want to laugh. you want one scene to have anything to do with the next or previous. Or that any of them is any good.

Excruciating, Messy, Painful, Disappointing, Amateurish

See it if Although the show has good intentions & the concept in theory could be great - it's painfully unfunny & not in the least bit entertaining.

Don't see it if Poorly executed, very amateurish and cheap. It's one bad sketch after another, the jokes bomb. The poor actors are trapped in this mess.

See it if a Saturday night-out w/the gang, including a 2-drink minimum, will fit the bill. THIS funny mess fits the bill. Surprisingly entertaining!

Don't see it if Tronald Dump & his crew fit YOUR bill. EVERYone's parodied, including the Clintons. These kids & the pianist work their asses off for 90min.
