Baldwin will replace her successor Jill Abramovitz. The cast currently features Neal Mayer and Tom Treadwell. About Baldwin's return, Bush Is Bad composer-lyricist-pianist Joshua Rosenblum said, “I'm thrilled that we've been running long enough that we can actually have a cast member leave and then return. Kate and Jill are both magnificently talented in very different ways-each with her own distinctive approach to Bush-bashing. It's quite inspirational.” Kate Baldwin has appeared on Broadway in Wonderful Town, The Full Monty and Thoroughly Modern Millie as well as the City Center Encores! productions of Babes in Arms, A Connecticut Yankee and Bloomer Girl.
Bush Is Bad, 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.
Described as a cross between Forbidden Broadway and "The Daily Show," Bush Is Bad "provides a bracing dose of the truth with an emphasis on comedy, not malice." Song titles include "How Can 59 Million People Be So Dumb?," "Good Conservative Values," "The Gay Agenda," "Scooter Libby Superstar" and "New Hope for the Fabulously Wealthy." The revue plays Thursday and Fridays at 9 PM with occasional Monday-night shows.
