Who’s Your Baghdaddy or How I Started the Iraq War
Only a boisterous, irreverent musical comedy with singing and dancing CIA agents could tell the true story of how we started the Iraq War. Prissy pundits, bickering bureaucrats and a dissolute defector get medals for their supporting roles.
Our story follows three main characters, an amalgam of people real and fictional, from 2001 - 2003. Richart, an ambitious German junior secret agent catches a prize defector who will become the CIA source on WMD. Nelson, a CIA analyst in Langley, can't get anyone to see the flaws in the story. The third character is journalist David Kay, who declared mistakenly on NBC that mobile germ labs had been found in Iraq, and was rewarded with a special assignment from George Tenet himself.
This is the story behind the story, the one you never really heard, told with humor, music, and good old fashioned show biz panache!
The show will feature Jesse Swenson (Spring Awakening, The Addams Family), Nehal Joshi (Les Miserables, Falling for Eve), Brandon Espinoza (Gypsy, Big), Alyssa Fox (Wicked - San Francisco), Matthew Myers (JC Superstar Natl Tour - original DC cast "best actor" dc theater scene), Harry Winter (Gigi Natl Tour - original DC cast), Claire Neumann, Tessa Faye & Olli Haaskivi.
