  The Adult in the Room at Victory Gardens Theater - Biograph

The Adult in the Room

Victory Gardens Theater - Biograph
2433 N. Lincoln Ave Chicago

How did Nancy Pelosi become the first Woman Speaker of the House-and perhaps more importantly-how has she managed to stay there? Everyone has an opinion about her, but almost no one truly knows her. This new show tells her personal story and political journey while trying to balance the forces of extreme left and extreme right, using all her power to preserve that rarest of rare birds in today's DC-consensus. That is, until that brand of consensus fades into the rear-view mirror. This up-to-the-minute, galvanizing piece is not just about Madame Speaker herself, but about the convulsive political climate where we currently find ourselves. Told with wit, irony, emotion and leavening doses of humor, The Adult in the Room is no mere history lesson, but a reflection on where we are and how we got here. She is reviled, she is beloved, and she has captured the attention of a nation. Nancy Pelosi's rise to become America's first female Speaker of the House has been historical and controversial. Everyone thinks they know Nancy. Yet, few really know her. This is her story.
