Join the OLLI Special Interest Group for a group reading of Gore Vidal's Tony-winning The Best Man!

At the 1960 Presidential primaries, Secretary of State William Russell lives by his principles but is haunted by recent health problems that threaten his career and vote-winning potential. Senator Joe Cantwell presents himself as the people's candidate, determined to win at all costs. Cantwell is faced with the revelation of sexual indiscretions, threatening both his marriage and his career. These two frontrunners for their party's nomination fight for the support of the outgoing president and resort to mudslinging in a very public contest.

Participation is free for all OLLI members. (If you are not yet a member, please join to take part in this program by calling 413.236.2190 or join online here. You must be an OLLI member to attend.)
