It’s 2008, the final days of the Bush administration. John Ashcroft, the de facto attorney general, is leaving politics to begin a second career—on Broadway! Confounding expectations, he’s tapped Urinetown creators Greg Kotis (book/lyrics) and Mark Hollmann (music/lyrics) to pen his debut one-man show. Employing G-men, handcuffs and aspirin, EAT THE TASTE is the untold, unauthorized, behind-the-scenes story of the making of a musical that has yet to be made.
“Kotis has created that exceptionally rare thing: a genuinely funny farce that takes real creative chances, and a socially engaged farce with real political points to make…EAT THE TASTE succeeds for all the usual reasons—talent and craft.” —National Public Radio.
“On a sheer laughs-per-minute ratio, there’s no funnier show in New York.” —NY Post.
