Can't get enough of politics? Take a break from today's mudslinging and see how it was done back in the 60s with Role Players Theatre's production of The Best Man. Written in 1960 by acclaimed author Gore Vidal, The Best Man tells the story of two candidates battling it out for their party's presidential nomination. When one exposes the secrets of the other, principles and integrity come into question.
Directed by Sue Trigg and featuring Richard Aiello and Jim Janisch, The Best Man shows Thursdays-Sundays now through November 1, at Role Players Theatre, 420 Front Street, Danville., 925-314-3400, www.villagetheatreshows.com.
