About the Show
Erica Vlahinos' raunchy comedy-cabaret explores the history of sexploits at the White House.
'Power Over POTUS' is a gossip-fueled political comedy about the women who did 69 in the Situation Room, used whips in the West Wing, had romps in the Rose Garden, and never acted First Ladylike. A certain former intern receives an invitation to get back in action 20 years after getting rug burn in the Oval Office. As she ponders pounding an orange POTUS, she seeks guidance from the spirits of the women who stood (and laid) in her shoes. Note: For mature audiences only. $20 food and beverage minimum per person.
"A laugh riot...Vlahinos has infused humor in history to lampoon one of the most infamous news cycles in our history...Using parodies of pop hits through the ages, the musical not only showcases Vlahinos' effortless performance but her stellar writing. Some of the songs strike stronger than others, but on the whole, Vlahinos has found a way to an include a spectrum of styles that remain cohesive to her storytelling."
"The lively, raucous and ribald theatre piece, created and performed by the versatile Erica Vlahinos, who inhabits all of these lively ladies, is an entertaining romp through sexual history...What is great fun is the choice of the music. Each of the women is well-defined by the song selections...Vlahinos is a confident and clever actress, singer and lyricist...If the show has some flaws, they are clearly outranked by the virtues to be found in the vices of our presidents."
