High Culture Today

Filed under: — site admin @ 10:23 PM UTC

The people at smartlist@smarttix.com keep sending me advertisements for New York shows, few of which look at all interesting. This one is an exception, though not in a good way:

BUSH IS BAD – Now in its Eighth Smash Month! Take advantage of this special offer and save 25% through the end of May!

BUSH IS BAD, which has been described as a cross between Forbidden Broadway and The Daily Show, offers catchy tunes, wickedly funny lyrics and scathing impersonations of the president and his dissembling gang of conspirators. Among the best-reviewed new musicals of the season, it has been described as “savvy, uproarious, [and] delicious,” with “lyrics that draw blood and melodies that stick in the brain,” eliciting “raucous, borderline orgasmic reactions.” The New York Times declared that “Bush-hating has become fun again!” For a limited time, you can enjoy all of the scathing fun for just $18.75!

“UPROARIOUS, infectious FUN!” – Broadwayworld.com

No comment seems necessary, except that $18.75 is very low for a New York show.
