Biden Spotted At Helen Mirren's Play 'Phedre'

Joe Biden was out and about in D.C. on Tuesday, catching the evening performance of "Phedre," Racine's Greek tragedy (adapted by Ted Hughes) that tells the story of a woman who falls in love her stepson after her husband disappears. Actress Helen Mirren plays the titular role.

Politico reports that the VPOTUS arrived swapped his motorcade for a more modest vehicle.

POLITICO spotted him cruising in a big navy Suburban for his cultural night on the town.

Tickets to the play, which opened on September 17th and closes on the 26th, are sold out.
