OFF BROADWAY REVIEW
The tweets, emails, texts and spoken remarks of four politicians disgraced by sex escapades during the last decade or so have been extracted and wickedly collaged for plenty of rude laughs by playwright Mario Correa in “Tail! Spin!”
A ruefully amusing 75 minutes at the Lynn Redgrave Theater, this Off Broadway review of misbehavior in places high and low is animated by five expert performers.
The only woman in the ensemble, Rachel Dratch of “Saturday Night Live” repute wryly depicts a series of “Wives, Tails, Beards and Barbara Walters” (as identified in the Playbill) who were tied up with the exploits of Anthony Weiner (Nate Smith), Governor Mark Sanford (Tom Galantich), Senator Larry Craig (Sean Dugan) and Representative Mark Foley (Arnie Burton). Wearing conservative suits, the actors also play bit roles as various others in these stories regarding lust and bluster.
