A Bush Carol, or, George Dubya and the Xmas of Evil

Full length, Musical

Cast: 7m, 3f

A musical lampoon of the Bush presidency, based on Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol.” Transported by Karla Faye Tucker, a born-again Christian executed by the state of Texas in 1998, Dubya travels to the past, present, and future in a series of hilarious and vividly imagined scenes. Will he learn, as Scrooge did, to carry Christmas in his heart? God help us, every one.

Far from Broadway, and under the radar, a gay-authored political satire/musical found its audience so well that it ran out of places to put them… a raggedly, hilarious and decidedly punchy show… it is bitterly funny and, underneath its own hijinks, rather smart.
