Joshua Rosenblum's revue will now play an open-ended run, offering performances Thursday and Friday evenings at 9 PM with occasional Monday night shows. The live recording of the work is set to hit stores Dec. 20 on the Original Cast Records label. The cast currently features Jill Abramovitz, Neal Mayer and Michael McCoy. 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 Triad Theatre is located in Manhattan at 158 West 72nd Street. Tickets are priced $20 (beginning Jan. 5, tickets will be $25) with a $12 minimum. Call (212) 352-3101 for reservations or visit www.triadnyc.com.
