Hope! Obama Musical to Debut in Germany

Hope! Obama Musical to Debut in Germany

It's springtime for Obama as a telling the story of his ascent to power in song and dance debuts in Germany. Hope! will feature roles including Barack and Michelle, a much-younger Hillary Clinton and John McCain, and of course Sarah Palin, whose solo includes scantily clad backup singers. The lyrics, mostly in English, are taken heavily from political speeches and statements.

Written by American composer Randall Hutchins, Hope! begs one question: why Germany? My guess is it would not do well in the US — even among Obama lovers, the honeymoon is over. But Germany is far enough removed to idealize Obama, or at least his election.

Would you see it?
