Tweetering and undying giddiness for James Madison – what else could you expect to find at a Miss America pageant? In this raucous “power-play” by the prolific Lauren Gunderson, contestant Katherine has political aspirations to match her beauty pageant ambitions. All she needs to revolutionize the American government is the help of one ultra-conservative senator’s aide on the cusp of a career breakthrough, and one bleeding-heart liberal blogger who will do anything for her cause. Well, that and a semi-historically-accurate ether trip. Just in time for the midterm election, here’s lookin’ at you, America.

Directed by the newest Lean ensemble member Maegan McNerney Azar and featuring Kerrie Seymour, Dayanari Umana and Founding Lean ensemble member Peggy Trecker White.
