Abramovitz to Replace Baldwin in Bush Is Bad

News   Abramovitz to Replace Baldwin in Bush Is Bad
 
Kate Baldwin, who currently stars in Bush Is Bad: The Musical Cure for the Blue-State Blues, will play her final performance in the hit new revue Oct. 27.

Jill Abramovitz, who has been seen onstage in Breaking Up Is Hard to Do, Cam Jansen, Cafe Society and Junie B. Jones, will replace Baldwin beginning Nov. 3. Joshua Rosenblum's show also stars Neal Mayer and Michael McCoy.

Bush Is Bad, which has been extended until the end of the year, will begin offering Monday-night performances at the Triad Theater Nov. 7. The show will continue to play Thursday evenings as well.

The show, according to production notes, "aims venomous, highly partisan musical barbs at the President and his dissembling gang of conspirators, resulting in a take-no-prisoners show." Gary Slavin directs and choreographs.

The Bush creative team also includes Anne Auberjonois (costume design), Tonya Pierre (lighting and sound design) and Colin Stokes (graphic design).

Described as a cross between Forbidden Broadway and "The Daily Show," Bush Is Bad is "a left-eyed look at the current sorry state of affairs in American government. It's the truth told bluntly but not savagely, with wit and without malice." Song titles include "How Can 59 Million People Be So Dumb?," "Good Conservative Values," "The Gay Agenda," "John Bolton Has Feelings, Too" and "New Hope for the Fabulously Wealthy." The Triad Theatre is located in Manhattan at 158 West 72nd Street. Performances are Thursdays at 9 PM; tickets are priced $20 with a $12 minimum. Call (212) 362-2511 for reservations or visit www.triadnyc.com.
