This world premiere comedy offers an up-close, creepily absurd behind-the-scenes look into Trump's daily life. Never before seen outtakes invented from a sad overblown life. More…
Imagine flipping wildly through the channels of Trump's life as if it were a crazy reality show. One minute he's putting Barron to bed, reading him from his favorite book 'The Art of the Deal.' Next, we get a behind the scenes look as Trump makes love to Melania while getting ready to perform his HBO special, 'Without Precedent.' Flip again and you have an impromptu meeting with Steve Bannon in the men's room; or a seder with Ivanka and Jared at Mar-a-Lago; not to mention a touching reunion with his dead dad in full KKK regalia. The invented scenarios are simultaneously sad, comic, and absurd, but most of all, surprisingly relatable. By filtering out the political noise and static, 'Transparent Falsehood' aims to distill Trump to some distinct essence, something that can be better understood if not contained.
See it if If you have not had enough attacks on the president and enjoy horrible, not even funny humor.

Don't see it if you value your time. I feel bad for the actors, since the script is not funny.
See it if The show needs to be slicker in its story with Trump being such an easy target. The jokes & clever observations are neither funny nor clever
Don't see it if The cast is trying to elevate the mediocre material but it seems like an uphill battle with no successful outcome.
See it if If you like or hate everything (Donald DRUMPF-REAL LAST NAME). THE BEST PART THAT MADE YOU GASP & THINK WAS THE VERY END!! OMG!!

See it if you dislike Trump, like very silly, sophomoric humor, can "put up" with bad casting of the lead and very "spotty" laughs.
Don't see it if like Trump, at least a minimum of nuanced, humor, and gaining some insights into something.
Also I'm anti-Trump and found this anti-Trump play very disappointing.
See it if you love theater and want to try off Broadway, are visiting from out of town, and he is still your president.
Don't see it if you can't leave MSNBC and the late night pundit laughter to focus on the strange reality of the folks running ? the country.
