Produced by Linda Carbone, The Citizens are a politically savvy cabaret group, channeling today's political anxiety into popular entertainment. In the lead-up to the 2016 election cycle, their newest show, Political Theater, is an exploration of social justice which will focus on significant issues like reproductive rights, police brutality, gender and race discrimination and immigration policy.
