James G. Watt has become something of a punch-line in discussions of U.S. politics in the 1980’s. Now, there’s a whole musical play about him, and I’m in it along with some of Seattle’s finest. Below is the blurb from the Village Theatre website. Click the link below or the banner above for more information, along with performance times, and ticketing. See you after the show!

With book and lyrics penned by 12-time Emmy Award-winning David Javerbaum (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All), this over-the-top political satire musical is based on the true story of James Watt, Ronald Reagan’s infamous Secretary of the Interior. Watt is best remembered for opening millions of acres of federal land for exploitation, banning the Beach Boys from 4th of July festivities, and successfully offending nearly everyone he came across. An eclectic score by Jonathan Larson Award-winner Brendan Milburn boasts music ranging from gospel, to rock, to country, making this a brazen musical experience unlike anything you’ve seen before.
