When former FBI agent Mark Felt revealed in 2005 that he had been Deep Throat, the secret source who helped Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein bring down President Richard Nixon, he ended one of the most intriguing chapters in the history of journalism (and one of the worst in U.S. politics).
Mark Felt, Superstar is, just as you wouldn't expect, a whimsical, jazzy musical romp. A cast of five portrays 24 colorful characters in this fast-moving take on a political scandal that shocked America and still reverberates today. Part thriller, part tragedy, part comedy, Mark Felt, Superstar has a book, music, and lyrics by Joshua Rosenblum. Its many-sidedness makes audiences rethink everything they thought they knew about Deep Throat and Watergate, all while entertaining them with musical numbers.
