Romantic Comedy Looks at Love on the Political Campaign Trail
THE BODY POLITIC

At Hand Theatre Company presents the World premiere of THE BODY POLITIC, written by Richard Abrons and Margarett Perry and directed by Margarett Perry. Previews of this limited engagement Off-Broadway run begin Thursday, February 10 at 59E59.
