The BNW extends the theatre's long tradition of devoting its creative muscle to satirizing all things political, especially during the Summer and Fall of a Presidential election year.
Never shying away from election year hot-buttons, past BNW election year reviews have included: "The Lion, the Witch and the War Hero: or, Is McCain Able?" (2008); "The Recession Follies: BUSHwhacked (1992); and "Dull Man Running: or, The Bush Little Gore House in Texas." (2000) In 1972, the BNW cast mounted "The Future Lies Just Ahead" (featuring Nixon on the poster), an odd foreshadowing to the President's demise shortly thereafter. In 1996, Dudley Riggs himself registered as a candidate for President and the cast mounted the show "Campaign in the Neck: The Election is Riggsed." (Dudley lost that election to Bill Clinton, but somehow managed to get more votes than Dole and Perot; at least in Uptown).
