After a hiatus, performances will play the Actors' Playhouse, 100 Seventh Avenue South, at Fourth Street in Greenwich Village. Opening for this new edition of the show is Oct. 4. (The show is not to be confused with the musical revue Bush Is Bad, also playing in Manhattan.)
"Told through 16 musical parodies and dozens of costume changes, Bush Wars sinks its talons into everything from Dick Cheney literally in bed with the oil companies to the Supreme Court's 'right hand turn' and from 'Republican training school' to George W. in a soft shoe number with his bosom buddy, Jesus!," according to production notes.
The new material includes the topics of immigration guest workers, wire tapping, the re-writing of the Constitution, and voter fraud.
The 90-minute Bush Wars is created and directed by Nancy Holson and Jay Falzone. It is written by Holson and choreographed by Falzone. Jim Russek conceived the show and co-produces. He is a former national political organizer and 30-year veteran of Broadway and Off-Broadway advertising. The acting company includes Jay Falzone, Jason Levinson, Abigail Nessen, Mamie Parris and Chris Van Hoy. Alexander Rovang is musical director, costumes are designed by Elizabeth Payne.
Holson also created The News in Revue, the perennial Berkshires revue now in its 15th year — currently performed at Cranwell Resort in Lenox, MA.
Bush Wars will play Wednesday through Fridays at 8 PM; Saturdays at 7 & 10 PM and Sunday at 3 & 7 PM. Tickets are $55 ($37.50 for 7 PM Sunday show). For tickets, contact Telecharge.com at (212) 239-6200.
