Vote Debs in 2008!

I know absolutely nothing about this production or this company, but I’m a big fan of political campaigns as performance art (I *did* run for mayor after all!). Plus, a company that is also doing a show about “pegging” can hardly be all bad! So here’s the info:

“I’d rather vote for something I want and not get it than vote for something I don’t want and get it.”    -Eugene Victor Debs

Vote Debs in ’08 is a 2008 presidential campaign alternative and ongoing theatrical performance designed to unlock the spirit and passion of five-time candidate Eugene V. Debs. Host Red Genie looks at the 2008 race and takes a chance on a 1908 candidate. Come along on the search, hear historical oratory, and enjoy original campaign music by ukelele hip-hop guru Jon Braman.
