A Brilliant Drama – “Five Presidents” – Review by Carol Moore

**** Highly Recommended **** I think everyone must have had the feeling sometime – you wish you could be a fly on the wall and see/hear what’s going on in that room.  With his brilliant drama, “Five Presidents”, Playwright Rick Cleveland has allowed all of us to get a glimpse of the things presidents and former presidents say to each other when they’re alone.  It’s a fascinating look into history in a kinder, gentler time in American history.  “Five Presidents” should be a must-see on everyone’s calendar.  4 BIG Spotlights
