Get Ready for Obama: The Musical
March will bring Obama On My Mind to London – to Islington's Hen and Chickens Theatre, to be exact, reports Playbill.com.
Press materials for the show, whose libretto and "pop, gospel, jazz and soft rock" score are the work of American crime writer and filmmaker Teddy Hayes, describe what's to come as "a humorous look at the weird and wonderful world behind the scenes of a small Obama campaign office and the larger than life characters who make the wheels turn, the cogs whirr and bring in the votes."
The limited engagement starts March 5 and runs through March 21. No word yet on casting.
