Rush Limbaugh: The Musical

More

You heard right: Second City is debuting a musical based on the life and times of Rush Limbaugh on Jan. 31 in Chicago. An array of political figures, both conservative and liberal, are also featured in the script. From the Second City website:

Brought to you by the same team that made Rod Blagojevich Superstar! an instant hit, Rush Limbaugh! The Musical takes us back to Rush's humble beginnings and follows his ascent to conservative dominance buoyed by characters like Ann Coulter, Karl Rove, and Donald Rumsfeld despite confrontations with Hillary Clinton and Barney Frank. The score for the show will feature a pastiche of Broadway musicals such as Spring Awakening, Wicked, and Rent.  You can call it "Dispirit of the Radio."

See clips of rehearsal and hear a few of the musical numbers here, in Second City's promo video.

Artwork on the production's website is based on Les Miserables and Wicked. Mark Sutton, who is playing Rush, is blogging about it here.
