D.C. Capital Fringe Festival 2012
Landless Theatre Company remounts the rock musical President Harding Is A Rock Star, created by Obie Award winning writer and musician Kyle Jarrow (A Very Merry Unauthorized Children’s Scientology Pageant, Whisper House), and directed by Melissa Baughman (Diamond Dead, 2008 Best Musical Pick of the Fringe). The production was named a Washington Post Editor’s Pick in 2008, declaring that “Harding Wins The Zany Vote!”
Our 21st President Warren G. Harding was a hard-living, hard-loving rock star. He rode a rock star’s tide of fame into office, reaping the benefit of the American Women’s new right to vote. Then he gambled away White House china and cabinet positions, fathered an illegitimate child with a teenage mistress in the Oval Office, and died an early rock star’s death before completing his term.
If he’s remembered today at all, it’s for being one of the most inconsequential presidents in U.S. History. Performance presented at Fort Fringe’s Baldacchino’s Gypsy Tent Bar – 607 New York Avenue, in Washington, DC:
