Who's Your Baghdaddy? Or How I Started the Iraq War, a new musical by Marshall Pailet and A.D. Penedo, opens Sunday, October 4, at the Actors' Temple Theatre. Directed by Pailet, with musical direction by Rona Siddiqui and choreography by Misha Shields, the play is based on a screenplay by J.T. Allen.

Inspired by a true story, Who's Your Baghdaddy? is a musical comedy presented as a support group for people who started the Iraq War. The show follows a handful of mid-level spies whose vanity and office politics contributed to the worst intelligence blunder in modern history. The cast features Brennan Caldwell, Jason Collins, Bob D'Haene, Brandon Espinoza, Olli Haaskivi, Nehal Joshi, Claire Neumann, and Larisa Oleynik.
