Presented by the theatre company Open at the Top, Joshua Rosenblum's revue will officially open April 6. The limited eight-week run will play through May 20.
The cast comprises Roger Ainslie, Stefanie Black, Melanie Ewbank, Sabrina Miller, Gerry Mullins, Mai Thompson-Heath, Michael Craig Shapiro and Jonathan Zenz. Jay Willick directs with musical direction by Michael Lavine.
Rosenblum, who composed new songs for this engagement, said in a recent statement, "I hate to kick a man when he's down, but given the insatiable demand for Bush-bashing on the West Coast, I really have no choice."
Bush Is Bad plays Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 3 PM. Tickets, priced $20-$35, are available by calling (818) 508-7101 or by visiting www.thenohoartscenter.com. The NoHo Arts Center is located at 11136 Magnolia Blvd. in North Hollywood.
