CRITIC'S CHOICE! "Funny and thought-provoking ... Superb performances ... Hilariously theatrical!" - Los Angeles Times
“Don’t miss it. Revel in the stagecraft and utter humanity of these men.” – Daily News

"If religion and comedy had a baby, this would be it." - Huffington Post
“Whip-smart philosophical comedy!” - Broadway World

A Founding Father, a Victorian novelist and a Russian revolutionary walk into a … stop me if you’ve heard this one. Thomas Jefferson (yes that one), Charles Dickens (the very same) and Count Leo Tolstoy (who else?) are brought together in a blistering battle of wits for the ages. From Scott Carter (Executive Producer of Real Time with Bill Maher), this whip-smart comedy examines what happens when great men of history are forced to repeat it.
