The Ideal Candidate – New City Stage Company

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.

Shed some light on HELLO BLACKOUT

In the middle of Fringe Arts, it can be a challenge to catch up to the many artists who are presenting work. But, that won’t stop us here. Today, I caught up with Whit MacLaughlin on the phone on his way to one of many destinations in his artistic hustle to chat about HELLO BLACKOUT. There is a lot of thought behind an NPL piece and Whit is the best to explain and express the motives of NPL work. So, take a listen to our interview with Whit MacLaughlin for New Paradise Laboratories production of HELLO BLACKOUT. Stay Tuned!

ABOUT HELLO BLACKOUT

HELLO BLACKOUT! is theatre with a philosophical brain and an unpredictable heart. It follows the eccentric Kissimmee family ⎯ triplets, their mother, and an enigmatic father ⎯ back to the beginning of time. Blackouts engulf the family as they slam into an inexplicable future, with grim and hilarious results.

A pageant for this contemporary American moment, NPL presents a world where everything is unprecedented, and the final outcome is anyone’s guess.
