"Gore Vidal's THE BEST MAN makes you wish that Vidal were writing the dialogue for the presidential debates. It brings to the backstabbing world of campaigning the bright verbal fire that All About Eve and Sweet Smell of Success brought to the backstabbing worlds of show business and journalism. —NY Times. "A sophisticated, elegant and damnably entertaining play!" —The New Yorker. "Gore Vidal's best play! Well-crafted and witty with surprises, reversals, pungent character sketches, satire, worldly wisdom and juicy roles for all concerned." —NY Magazine."Gore Vidal's THE BEST MAN is a winner! Extraordinarily fresh, witty, sharp and relevant." —NY Daily News. "Vidal's story is a corker! Suspenseful, funny, surprisingly fresh!" —Associated Press.
