On today’s podcast, Ginger Aña Dayla joins to talk about New City Stage Company’s work in progress, “The Ideal Candidate”. The political pop-up dinner performance feels plucked from today’s news cycle and is part of Philly Theatre Week. Stay Tuned!
ABOUT THE IDEAL CANDIDATE
Republican Senator Eugene Worthington is ready to retire from a life of public service but needs to help his fiancée, conservative Las Vegas Mayor Belinda Schwartz win his seat while also getting his healthcare bill through. Everything seems fine until a harmless chance meeting with adult film star Krystal Myst spurs a torrent of media attention. Krystal wonders if perhaps the best person to represent the great state of Nevada… is her? Set in the very current political environment where rules were made to be broken, “The Ideal Candidate” examines what happens when a non-traditional office seeker tests the limits of what is normal, what is right, what will sell and where do we go from here.
