“FORWARD” – BARACK OBAMA SUPERSTAR!
“JUST GO AWAY” – AMERICA
Planet Washington will present a special show of wicked funny and musical spoofs of the elections, the candidates, and all the fun, fudge, and gridlock that is Washington – in the weekend between the two presidential debates:
Our Triumphant Return to DC: At our old haunt The Westin, formerly the Vista International, made infamous in 1990 when DC Mayor Marion Barry was videotaped smoking a small pipe in Room 727 (apparently a non-smoking room) and was escorted out by FBI agents who just happened to be next door (There’s always a cop around when you DON’T need one. ) (“At the Vista with the Sista” is Stop #12 on The Planet Washington Irreverent Tour )
Last time we performed at The Westin our friend and mentor Mark Russell, Dean of DC political satirists, dropped in to share a few of his arrows which were as always right on target!
Mark just turned 80 in August and is still the Jedi Master of musical political parody!
