WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The critically acclaimed and wildly popular Bush Wars: Musical Revenge re-opens with several new musical numbers based on material ripped from recent headlines. Told through 16 musical parodies and dozens of costume changes, Bush Wars sinks its talons into everything from Dick Cheney literally in bed with the oil companies to the Supreme Court's "right hand turn" and from "Republican training school" to George W. in a soft shoe number with his bosom buddy, Jesus! The new material includes a hilarious take on the immigration guest workers' program, wire tapping, the re-writing of the Constitution, and voter fraud! No one is spared during the ninety minutes of non-stop music and comedy. The musical takes a funny but insightful look at how America's current government has undermined The Geneva Convention, Science (Evolution and The Environment), Social Security, Personal Security, Religious Freedom, Personal Freedom, Pretzels, Government Secrets, The Courts, The Brain Dead and yes, Democracy itself! Bush Wars is created and directed by Nancy Holson, writer/director of the News in Revue, the perennial political/social revue at Cranwell Resort in Lenox, Massachusetts and her long time collaborator Jay Falzone. Jim Russek conceived the show and co-produces.
