HOLLYWOOD (March 14) Eager to put an end to swirling rumors about what really went on during the meeting between the men in the White House Oval Office on November 10, 2016 – two days after the election – playwright Ray Richmond today sent invites to both Presidents Obama and Trump to attend TRANSITION, the play that imagines the content of that historic conversation.


Since previews began on March 9, two pairs of tickets apiece had been reserved for the show’s real-life protagonists to take in the performance at the Lounge Theatre on Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood. Now, Richmond has taken the offer a step further by notifying offices of both men that seats will be held for them at the 8 p.m. performance on Saturday, March 25.

“It struck us as wholly unfair that we were speculating about the discussion at that meeting without allowing the men who participated to judge its accuracy for themselves,” said Richmond, who wrote the play in a passionate fury following Trump’s election last Nov. 8.

“After running it by my TRANSITION colleagues, the consensus is that both Obama and Trump should not only have comped tickets available to see the play; they should also have time in their busy schedules to make it out to Los Angeles on a Saturday night. President Obama has taken the opportunity to master kitesurfing, while President Trump continues to obsessively watch television and post on Twitter despite leading the free world.”

Richmond promised that, should either President take him up on the offer, space would be made for Secret Service to attend, while security at The Lounge Theatre would be significantly beefed up from its typical nothing.

“We promise to have their backs,” he added.

TRANSITION stars Second City alumnus Harry S. Murphy as Trump and Joshua Wolf Coleman as Obama. It’s directed by Lee Costello. The show opened to rave reviews ("A delicious comedy!" "Well-paced!" "Briskly directed!" "Two splendid performers!") on March 11 and continues Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. through April 16.

Tickets are available online at Plays411.com/transition.
