New York University’s Program in Vocal Performance will produce The Fix Sept. 30 through Oct. 4, 2010 at the Frederick Loewe Theatre at 35 West 4th Street. The show features book and lyrics by John Dempsey, music by Dana P. Rowe (writers of Zombie Prom, The Witches of Eastwick), and was originally produced by Cameron Mackintosh. John Simpkins directs. This production will feature a great many recent changes made to the script and score; the writers will be collaborating with Simpkins and the cast throughout the entire process.
A hard-edged commentary on the American political machine, The Fix opens with sitting senator and presidential candidate, Reed Chandler, dying unexpectedly while in bed with his mistress. At Reed’s funeral, his widow Violet encourages her brother-in-law to mentor her son, Cal, so that he might follow in his father’s footsteps and make a run at the presidency. The scheming duo will stop at nothing to see Cal elected. The Fix will convince you of the power of spin in American politics past, present, and future.
