Save up to 69 percent when you book Gore Vidal’s classic play through us

What is it? Tickets to the West End revival of Gore Vidal’s classic presidential play – exclusively discounted for Time Out readers. Why buy? Even though it premiered on Broadway back in 1960, ‘The Best Man’ has never run on the London stage. But despite that fact it’s almost six decades old, this tale of two party candidates battling in the presidential primaries has more resonance than ever before. William Russell is a measured, thoughtful establishment figure; Joe Cantwell is brash, controversial and happy to say and do anything to win public approval and claw his way to power. As the two candidates battling for the endorsement of the outgoing president, the contest takes an ugly turn. Sound familiar at all? Martin Shaw (‘Judge John Deed’) stars as Russell, while Jeff Fahey (‘Lost’) plays Cantwell. Also starring is Maureen Lipman (‘The Pianist’) and Honeysuckle Weeks (‘Foyle’s War’) also co-star. With our exclusive offer, you can save up to 69 percent when you book this through us – our tickets start at just £15. Don’t miss this timely tale of politics and populism.
