Who said history had to be dry?
Ellie MacPherson's Happy Birthday, Mr. President! is a pop culture influenced evening of anecdotes about the forty five men to have served as President of the United States. From a Tina Turner-ified George Washington, to Ronald Reagan by way of Prince, MacPherson breathes life into these historical figures with stories of bad behavior, idiosyncrasies, and a healthy ranking of the hottest heads of state.
Ellie MacPherson: Happy Birthday, Mr. President! is playing at the Underbelly Cowgate, Big Belly, through August 28. For more information on her Edinburgh Fringe run, please visit EdFringe.com.
