Arena Stage Performance of the Musical, "Dave"

Please join us for a performance of the world premiere musical “Dave” adapted from an Oscar-nominated movie by the same name.  Following the show, we’ll have an informal discussion with Arena Stage Theatre staff.

According to the Arena Stage website: “From a Tony and Pulitzer Prize award-winning creative team, comes the world-premiere musical comedy “Dave,” adapted from the Oscar-nominated film. “Dave” tells the story of high school teacher (and presidential lookalike) Dave Kovic, who is hired by the Secret Service as a stand-in for the Commander-in-Chief. When the President falls ill under less than “presidential” circumstances, Dave is thrust into the Oval Office to avoid a national scandal, and must find a way to gain the trust and love of the American people … and the First Lady.” Check out the trailer for the musical here! You can also see some photos of the cast from the first day of rehearsal on Broadway World. dave-casting-announcement
