OBAMA ON MY MIND is a musical comedy about a peculiar group of Obama campaign workers in a small American town and how these weird and humorous characters panic when Sarah Palin comes into the presidential race causing Obama to fall 20 points behind in the national polls.
This is a musical in the style of classic American musicals like “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum”, “Damned Yankees” and “The Music Man”, with lots of energetic dancing, catchy songs and great fun.
The soundtrack ranges from pop to gospel to soft rock bringing together a cast of 11 loyal, obsessive and plain peculiar personalities striving to get their man into the white house.
“Obama On My Mind is a farcical hilarious musical with spot on observations into the characters and issues found in an American political campaign office”
The Kilburn Times
“Uninhibited and highly entertaining…by the end, I doubt there was a single audience member who didn’t emerge singing the catchy title song to themselves” Music OHM
“People all around me of all ages were laughing and moving to the catchy tunes…For my money Obama On My Mind not only lives up to its publicity but leads the pack and offers something that too many musicals lack, a great night of plain old fun” The Primary Times
“Nice Tunes and its lots of fun” The Londonist
After a successful world premiere at London’s Hen and Chickens Theatre in March 2008,where more than half the performances were sold out, OBAMA ON MY MIND is now going on tour.
