About this show

America Starts With Me or The Pursuit of Happiness A musical civics lesson, a patriotic revue and a tap-dancing game of recapture the flag. The debut performance from The Patriots addresses malfeasance in the land by invoking the seminal texts of the nation like The Bill of Rights and other writings of the Founding Fathers. Addressing war with Revolutionary-era ballads, Busby Berkeley fireworks and a literal staging of the national anthem. All mixed with a healthy dose of American showbiz pizzazz. THE PATRIOTS: a star-spangled revue from Adam Dugas, co-founder and creative director of The Citizens Band, and creator of the downtown Christmas extravaganza Chaos & Candy.
