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.
"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." Full Review
"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." Full Review
See it if A one-woman show w/ powerful pipes who sings about presidential mistresses delights you. It was a deviously creative & humorous performance
Don't see it if You expect to see more than one person on stage. This subversive approach to women's rights & gender equality goes down easily in song-form
See it if Fun, funny one-hander, with a first-rate writer/performer (with backup trio) strutting her smart, sexy stuff.
Don't see it if Like Trump? Stay home. Sex talk bothers you? It ain't Mary Poppins. But you'll be missing some good insights and great laughs.
See it if you want to have a great time. Want to see lovely impressions of past mistresses. Awesome narrative with a great twist at the end.
Don't see it if Don't want to help support Erica and her lovely assistant Jessica. Dislike fun. Dislike profanity. Are defensive about Trump.
See it if You enjoy great acting & singing that is relevant to the story. Very funny and imaginative writing. The cafe, good food & a great venue
Don't see it if If you don't have a sense of humor or get easily offended by salty language.
See it if Playful historical satire with feminist and political themes. Fun singing and acting with an energetic live band. Witty pop song parodies.
Don't see it if You want to avoid explicit sexual material. You wouldn't enjoy the lampooning of powerful men and the women who pursue them.
See it if You are looking for a behind the scenes view of Presidential indiscretions in a comedic presentation.
Don't see it if You are offended by raw and offensive language or do not want to spend extra money on food or drinks ($20 per person mandatory).
See it if you would enjoy a one-woman powerhouse singing in the voices of various first ladies/mistresses with wit and charm. Cabaret performance.
Don't see it if you are easily offended by sexual content; you don't enjoy "dinner theater" type of venue; you are not into one woman shows.
