Having been handed the gift of a local candidate for president, Second City creates a brilliant satire of unreasonable expectations. We see an unloved Hillary Rodham Clinton slowly crushed by a charming rival with a Kenyan daddy and a chameleonic ability to be black, white, Jewish, Latino, gay or, in a pinch, a soccer mom. It's the best revue of the decade. Michelle Obama attends the show that July; the future president sees most of the content at a fundraiser that fall.
