POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive has arrived on Broadway and getting tickets to this buzzy new satire just got a little bit easier. The production — written by Selina Fillinger and directed by Tony Award winner Susan Stroman — has announced its rush ticketing and digital lottery policies.
Audiences may enter the Telecharge Digital Lottery from midnight to 3 PM one day before their chosen performance. Winners will be drawn at 9 AM for matinees and 3 PM for evening shows. Up to two tickets can be purchased via the lottery for $39 each (plus a $4 service charge per ticket). Seating is subject to daily availability. Audiences can go to PotusBway.com/lottery to enter.
Additionally, same-day rush tickets are available for just $39 and can be purchased at the box office only on the day of the performance.
In the new comedy POTUS (which stands for President of the United States), one four-letter word is about to rock 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. When the President unwittingly spins a PR nightmare into a global crisis, the seven brilliant and beleaguered women he relies upon most risk life, liberty, and the pursuit of sanity to keep the commander-in-chief out of trouble.
Theater favorites Lilli Cooper, Lea DeLaria, Rachel Dratch, Julianne Hough, Suzy Nakamura, Julie White, and Vanessa Williams star in the comedic play now at Broadway’s Shubert Theatre. The new work opens on April 27. Cooper stars as Chris, DeLaria as Bernadette, Dratch as Stephanie, Hough as Dusty, Nakamura as Jean, White as Harriet, and Williams as Margaret. Dratch, Hough, and Nakamura all make their Broadway debuts with the production.

Hair and wig design are by Cookie Jordan, with Rocio Mendez providing intimacy and fight direction. Casting is by Taylor Williams, and Johnny Milani is production stage manager.
