The Fix – Discussion Night

September 8th.  When a popular presidential candidate dies in his mistress’s arms, his ambitious wife, Violet, immediately declares that if she can’t be the wife of the president, then she’ll be the mother of the president – and thrusts their lackluster son Cal into the spotlight in Dempsey and Rowe’s outrageous musical comedy The Fix. With the help of her strategic brother-in-law, Violet transforms her son into the perfect citizen and ideal politician. Together, they create one of the most dysfunctional, yet brutally entertaining, almost-first families.

With a rock-laced, eclectic score and scandalous lyrics, the team behind The Witches of Eastwick and Brother Russia skewers the American bureaucratic machine. It’s The Manchurian Candidate meets Caligula, with a voice uniquely its own; The Fix is a darkly brilliant, over-the-top, audaciously fun ride through the shenanigans of political elections.

The Year of Fear: Machine Gun Kelly and the Manhunt that Changed the Nation

September 9th.  It’s 1933 and Prohibition has given rise to the American gangster. Bank robberies at gunpoint are commonplace and kidnapping for ransom is the scourge of a lawless nation. George “Machine Gun” Kelly is one of the most celebrated gangsters of this era, who sets his sights on the easy-money racket of kidnapping. His target: rich oilman, Charles Urschel. Joe Urschel, executive director of the National Law Enforcement Museum discusses The Year of Fear, which is a thrilling, true story of gangsters and lawmen, and how J. Edgar Hoover used this now legendary kidnapping case to launch the FBI. A book signing will follow the program.
