Renowned theater critic John Lahr created a bold reworking of Richard Condon’s political thriller, updating the action to the 1990s while retaining the core premise of a brainwashed war hero who’s programmed to become an assassin. Kelsey Grammer stars as Raymond Shaw in this co-production with Chicago’s Shattered Globe Theatre, starring the original cast.
Recorded before a live audience at the DoubleTree Guest Suites Chicago in March 1996.

Fine job by the cast, including Kelsey Grammar and a show stealer from whoever who played the VP candidate.
The new setting of who the conspirators were is a little PC hoaky, common for LA Theater, but luckily didn't spoil the play and added one humdinger of a performance by one cast member.
