New York City
Just in time for the Republican and Democratic national conventions, this World Premiere comedy, provides a behind-the-scenes look at the current occupant of the White House and his main rival.
It turns out that even Presidents get the blues, or–in Barack Obama’s case–the blahs. Fighting the Republicans is getting old, and while Barack finds running for president exciting, being president has gotten pretty tiresome. Remembering how he thrilled audiences when he sang at the Apollo Theater and at a White House blues concert, Barack decides to embark on a career as a soul singer and music educator, putting the country in Michelle’s capable hands.
Meanwhile, Mitt Romney tries to spruce up his persona with improv classes in the hopes of becoming funnier and more relaxed with average folks. An unexpected White House encounter between Barack and Mitt leads to some unusual jousting, giving Barack second thoughts about his change-of-career plans.
