Publisher's Summary

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.
