In asteptarea unei vesti interesante din Massachusetts, iata un musical dedicat cuplului Obama, maretilor Conducatori. Obama Mia! comenteaza WSJ. Unde esti… tovarase Ceausescu? Dar voi… Vadim, Paunescu?
‘Hope—The Obama Musical Story” premiered here Sunday evening. One is tempted to end the review right there. Seriously, isn’t the oeuvre’s title and premature timing commentary enough? Sure, the U.S. president has been (favorably) compared to God but even Jesus Christ had to wait nearly 2,000 years before he became a Superstar. (…)
With polls showing that most Americans now realize they are being (mis)led by a mere mortal, it is no coincidence that this production had its debut in Germany. Here the president’s messiah status (remember the 200,000 worshipers at his 2008 Berlin speech?) is still accepted dogma and helped fill the Jahrhunderthalle, a 2,000-seat venue. (…)
The musical’s American composer and lyricist, Randall Hutchins, who lives in Germany, says his show is not „political.” Right, but only in the sense that Leni Riefenstahl’s „Triumph of the Will” was just a documentary.
