WHAT PEOPLE SAID ABOUT Red All Over
"Each week her cast of clever and wacky guests succeed in turning current political and cultural events upside down, often with viewpoints inspired by the Nation." --The Nation Associate.
"If the current state of political and business affairs has you more down than the thermometer is up, take a stroll over the Parkside on Thursdays. Your mind will be fed by both intelligence and humor." --Lianne Smith"The concept is very fresh and fun! The performers get to be themselves, and draw real life into their characters right before your eyes. The quick contrast between real and imaginary inspires the creativity within you as well as tickles your funny bone." --Anna Chlumsky

used America's fear and anger to push through fast-track war legislation that benefitted
their business friends. Topical is when hearings were held to determine how much
Bush & Co. lied and misinformed the American people.
