POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass Are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive

Written by Selina Fillinger

Directed by Ashley Love

Producers Amy Sutton and Gary Chiles

September 1-October 8

Sterling Stage



One four-letter word is about to rock 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. When the President unwittingly spins a PR nightmare into a global crisis, the seven brilliant and beleaguered women he most relies upon risk life, liberty, and the pursuit of sanity to keep the commander-in-chief out of trouble. This uproarious, all-female farce took Broadway by storm in 2022; this fall, the wacky West Wing lands in Space City. After all, behind every great man is a great woman—or seven of them.
