'Rush Limbaugh: The Musical' Opens
February 5, 2010 at 4:18 AM (PT)
The premiere WEDNESDAY (2/3) of famed comedy improv troupe SECOND CITY's "RUSH LIMBAUGH: THE MUSICAL" drew less-than-enthusiastic reviews from the CHICAGO TRIBUNE's CHRIS JONES. JONES opined that "this uncertain show can't compete with the outsize personality of the object of its satire."
In his review, JONES criticizes the show for "dodging the core of LIMBAUGH: the talker, the microphone, the listeners. It's all about the relationship, stupid. That's the man. That needs to be the musical. Instead, (it) keeps running from RUSH" by including material about others, including BARNEY FRANK, HILLARY CLINTON and ANN COULTER.
The show lampooning the PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS host, from the same troupe that presented "ROD BLAGOJEVICH SUPERSTAR!," is set to run through MARCH 24th at SECOND CITY E.T.C. in CHICAGO on TUESDAYs and WEDNESDAYs at 8:30p and SUNDAYs at 2p CT.
