From the makers of 'Rod Blagojevich Superstar' comes 'Rush Limbaugh! The Musical'
December 31, 2009
Heads up, Dittoheads and Feminazis. Rush Limbaugh is about to get the Second City treatment, from the team that last year set Rod Blagojevich's woes to song.
The theater is set to announce next week a February premiere for "Rush Limbaugh! The Musical," a tuneful send-up of the right-wing radio talker with talent on loan from God.
It's the new project from Matt Hovde, director of the Second City hit "Rod Blagojevich Superstar!," and its writers, Ed Furman and T.J. Shanoff. Local improv veteran Mark Sutton (of Annoyance Theater and "Bassprov" fame) will sing the title role.
"Limbaugh" will run Tuesday and Wednesday nights in Second City's e.t.c. space.
Like his WLS-AM (890) colleague Blagojevich, El Rushbo is leading a volatile life full of stage-ready drama; on Wednesday, the radio star went to a Honolulu hospital after suffering chest pains on vacation.
