VOTE!, according to press notes, focuses "on the electoral process from the perspective of three high school seniors. The race forces the candidates to consider the meaning of each vote and the importance of distinctive character in politics. While some of the students have no problem gaining approval from their peers, others act as though they'll stop at nothing to win the coveted position of student council president."
The musical has lighting design by Brian Tovar, costume design by Nicole Smith, sound design by Eric McMiller and scenic design by Hilary Noxon. For tickets and further information phone (212)279-4488 or visit FringeNYC.
