About the show

Erica Vlahinos' raunchy comedy-cabaret explores the history of sexploits at the White House. More…

'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.

See it if Playful historical satire with feminist and political themes. Fun singing and acting with an energetic live band. Witty pop song parodies.
