A town hall meeting in Anytown, USA provides the dramatic context for a panoply of songs in a wide range of musical styles and genres, whose cleverly constructed lyrics explore a vast array of contemporary hot-button social issues. Both ends of the political spectrum are satirically skewered over the course of the story, but the show offers sympathy to each side as well. Approaching its varied topics with wit and good humor, this full-length original musical by Jason Powell attempts to throw a rope-bridge over the ever-widening chasm of misunderstanding between the right and the left in modern-day politics.
This production featuring Pius XI Catholic High School students was presented this summer at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland and plays for one more hometown performance as part of the Milwaukee Fringe Festival, on the stage of the Wilson Theater at Vogel Hall inside the Marcus Center!
