Leaked videos, computer hacks, spoiler millennial voters and multiple FBI investigations swirling around a hotly-contested election make the Atlanta Bar Association’s latest all-lawyer comedy musical, “A Courthouse Line XII: Mock the Vote” strangely true to life—but a lot more fun to watch.

Cathy O’Neil, by day a partner in the special matters practice at King & Spalding, came out of retirement to write and direct one of the most entertaining Bard shows yet, ably assisted by Brian Johnson of Drew Eckl & Farnum.
