Due to popular demand, Steppenwolf Theatre Company is pleased to announce its highly-anticipated Chicago premiere of Selina Fillinger’s outrageous farce POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass Are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive has added one additional week of performances, extending through Sunday, December 10, 2023.
POTUS will feature ensemble members Celeste M. Cooper, Sandra Marquez, Caroline Neff
and Karen Rodriguez with Karen Aldridge, Chloe Baldwin and Meighan Gerachis.
It’s just another (omg, wtf, lmfao) day at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. When a White House PR nightmare
spins into a legit sh*tshow, seven brilliant and beleaguered women must risk life, liberty and the
pursuit of sanity to keep the commander-in-chief out of trouble. POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great
Dumbass are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive is a bawdy and irreverent look at sex, politics
and the women in charge of the man in charge of the free world. Who knew that global crisis is always
just a four-letter word away?
The creative team includes Regina García (Scenic Design), Raquel Adorno (Costume Design),
Heather Gilbert (Lighting Design), Pornchanok Kanchanabanca (Sound Design and Composition),
Almanya Narula (Fight Choreographer), Maya Vinice Prentiss (Intimacy Choreographer), Kate
DeVore (Vocal Coach), Patrick Zakem (Creative Producer), Tom Pearl (Producing Director), JC
Clementz, CSA (Casting Director), Laura D. Glenn (Production Stage Manager) and Kathleen
Barrett (Assistant Stage Manager).
