W! The Musical!

by Tom Mula and Steve Rashid

directed by Steve Scott

A musical... er, tribute... to our 45th president, W! The Musical! takes place at a Republican $2000/plate fundraiser. The show features George W. Bush (as portrayed by Tom Mula) singing biting songs like "A Texas Kind of Prez" and "In His Own Words". Various members of his administration bully him in duets, suck up to him in solos and choreograph him through his confused and deluded policy making.

90 perfect minutes...I found myself laughing and giggling throughout the whole thing... very very clever... wonderful. A great job. Very charming. Hedy Weiss, WTTW
