The Mad Show premiered in 1966. "A comic revue filled with songs, sketches and the irreverent humor in the style of the ever-popular Mad magazine, the original production featured Linda Lavin and Jo Anne Worley. While spoofing everything from television commercials to the generation gap, The Mad Show includes the timeless and hilarious sketch, 'How to Be President.'" The Mad Show will be directed by Carl Andress.

York Theatre Company at St. Peter's is located on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue. Individual tickets are $39.50 and available at the York box office, by calling (212) 935-5820 or by visiting yorktheatre.org.
