The Outsider, Paper Mill Playhouse, 22 Brookside Drive, Millburn, 973-376-4343
8 p.m., Comedy about modern American politics. $34 and up., www.papermill.org

In politics, the less you know, the higher you’ll go! At once a razor-sharp satire and an inspirational tribute to democracy, The Outsider is a timely and hilarious send-up of modern American politics. In the midst of a political scandal, Ned Newley, the ultimate policy wonk, is unexpectedly thrust into the position of Governor. A complete unknown, with no political instincts and a paralyzing fear of public speaking, Ned seems destined to fail. But his political consultants see things a little differently: Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office. Unless the public is looking for… the worst candidate to ever run for office!

Runs Jan 24 - Feb 18
