This Town, by renowned author, New Yorker political analyst and White House presidential advisor Sidney Blumenthal, is a hilarious political satire. The play takes us inside the well-groomed Washington Press Corps, who yawn when they hear about peace treaties but snap to attention at the chance to uncover a little dirt about the First Dog

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Gerrit Graham, Richard Kind, Jane Lanier, David Lewman, Joe Liss, Gates McFadden, Paul Mercier, John Randolph, John Vickery and Alan Wilder.
