Victim or accomplice? Trapped or willing agent? Melania Trump is an enigma; her actions and words contradictory. As both the media and public speculate about the First Lady’s true emotions concerning her husband and the presidency, she maintains an air of mystery – perhaps on purpose.

Join Melania at an exclusive press conference as she tries to get re-elected as the First Lady of the United States, as the press asks such hard-hitting questions as: What is Melania’s favorite movie as a little girl growing up in Slovenia? Will she be able to turn FLYLF into a hashtag? Will we find out which character from GoT Melania identifies with? Which are some of her favorite affirmations? And, of course, does she really care about this country?

Here is the Playbill!

Here are some audience reviews!
