About the Event
Philadelphia. The 48 hours leading up to the presidential nomination. Two candidates and their advisors play an intense winner-take-all game of political cat and mouse. Promoting virtually identical policies, the two men’s personalities define their true differences: one is a wit and scholar with lofty principles; the other is young, ruthless—and the perfect TV-friendly candidate. The Best Man will have you hanging on every unpredictable twist, turn, play, and ploy, as secrets are revealed and allegiances are bought and sold. In this time when politics are fiercely debated, The Best Man should not be missed!
