"Rogelio Martinez [is] a genuine new talent"
– CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Jan 20 - Feb 25, 2018 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Around 2 hours and 30 minutes including one intermission

The fate of the world depends on chemistry.

Before Twitter, Tinder and 24/7 news, two of history’s most enigmatic leaders—Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev—meet to halt the arms race. A crafty game of one-upmanship ensues, while their wives engage in a passive-aggressive tango over tea. “A fresh and funny talent” (Backstage), playwright Rogelio Martinez “finds new twists on old topics” (Variety) in this compulsively fascinating, slyly comic backstage glimpse of a 20th century landmark event.
