Can you picture Jake Gyllenhaal in an orange knit stocking hat? He has auditioned for the lead in a new play "loosely based on Howard Dean's 2004 campaign for the White House" according to the NYPost's theater page:
a young, idealistic communications director who works for an inspiring, though unorthodox, presidential candidate. During the campaign, his career is done in by more seasoned politicos who thrive on poisonous partisan politics, dirty tricks and back-stabbing.
Those of you who know people on whom this may be "loosely based" should reach out to them and give us any inside scoop.
Now that's a show climax that really upset me.
