TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: Dan Hoyle’s Post-Election Update of “The Real Americans” returns to The Marsh San Francisco

Oct 06, 2017
Returning with newly-added post-election material, The Marsh San Francisco presents Dan Hoyle’s wildly popular “The Real Americans,” currently playing through October 28, 2017 at The Marsh San Francisco (1062 Valencia Street). In this acclaimed production, award-winning actor/playwright Hoyle gives a riveting recounting of his 100-day van trip through small-town and rural America, where he found himself at ground zero of the country’s economic inequality and political division. The updated ending will bring heightened relevancy in 2017 as the 45th president, championed by Middle America, continues his first year in office. Director Charlie Varon’s work in this revised production of “The Real Americans” has been hailed as “over the top brilliant, a belly-laugh evening of the best that solo performance has to offer.”

“The Real Americans” made its World Premiere at The Marsh San Francisco in 2010, and was held over for eighteen months. An instant hit with audiences and critics alike, the show received critical acclaim from major news outlets as it went on to perform across the country and around the globe. After more than 300 performances across the country and post-election updates from the road in 2017, Dan Hoyle’s “The Real Americans” now returns to where it began. Through Hoyle’s re-visited interactions with a Reaganite union coal miner in Appalachian Kentucky, a family oriented drug-dealer in the Mississippi Delta, an anti-war gun salesman in Michigan, a closeted gay creation theory expert in Texas, a group of hipster brunchistas in San Francisco, among others, audiences catch a glimpse of the intense polarization of culture and politics in the era of Donald Trump’s presidency throughout the United States.
