Like a lot of people today, campaign manager Tess Baker is sick of politics. She's just about ready to throw in the when somebody wakes up a candidate she can work with - Abraham Lincoln. Will he be a good President in 2020 America? Will he even win? You decide! That's right, the play has two endings and your vote counts!

This year we have seen a plethora of political shows as we head into the 2020 elections, but this one take an unusual stance on the entire election process. Have we truly reached the point where it doesn’t matter what the candidates believe but only how well they are known? This show examines that question with an irreverent look at Presidential elections, and features an all-star ensemble cast to achieve that vision. With an incredible script by Holiday Kinard and brilliant direction from Colleen Labella, the cast truly had the freedom to deliver a strong contender for some type of award recognition and is most worthy of an Encore performance. Allie Leonard as Tess and Tim Kopacz as Lincoln turn in especially savory performances, while receiving amazing support from Monique Getineau (April), Amadia Bearden (Hunter), Rebecca Knowles (Kenzie), and Janet Chamberlin (Mallory). Patrick Censopiano, Kristen Cook, Eric Delgado, Adam Gentzler and Dan Torson all provide outstanding support in multiple roles as part of the ensemble.

I loved all the references to Abe Lincoln’s real life, like the jokes about his last memory being at a play. I loved the three actors who switched between various different characters, the mock news channels, and the adorable relationship between the two characters who got engaged. This show is so fun and light hearted and i wish I saw it earlier so I could’ve told people to go see it.

there are some laugh-out-loud moments, good character arcs, a nice interactive bit that pays off beautifully, and good acting... - Recommended

Sadly, the promising premise of Lincoln 2020, joins the ranks of new wallpaper for the Titanic’s staterooms, and General Custer’s victory parade on his triumphant return from the Little Big Horn.

Fast-paced satire "Lincoln 2020," written and produced by Holiday Kinard, and neatly directed by Colleen Labella, hits some very sharp political notes in their first-year effort at the Hollywood Fringe Festival, now playing at the Broadwater Second Stage. Mirroring the debacle that was the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election, this pointed satire asks a pretty good “What if" on a number of contemporary political, social, racial and LGBT issues in the aftermath of 2016–a blame for which we must both sling and shoulder–and all the while managing to be pretty damn funny.
