This is the Week That Is—Inquirer Review
'This Is the Week That Is' spoofs the presidential race
Howard Shapiro, Inquirer Theater Critic
"I've seen many versions of 1812 Productions' annual This Is the Week That Is, a satire on news and life in general, and this year's 'Election Special' is the funniest and meatiest I can recall. It brings much needed balance to this election year—two-plus hours of laughter, and I mean some big ones, skewering the race for the White House."
This is the Week That Is—Daily News
A cure for the election blues
Chris Brennan, Philadelphia Daily News
"A cast of seven sing, dance and joke their way through a dead-on parody of stiff presidential candidates trying to relate to everyman America, fatuous cable-news pundits eager to coin the next hot buzzword and infuriating fact-checking that leaves voters longing for better choices."
