OBAMA DRAMA: A POLITICAL THEATRICAL SPECTACULAR! - The Inauguration Celebration
Celebrate Barack Obamas historic inauguration with Creative Destruction as they remount their hit show OBAMA DRAMA: A POLITICAL THEATRICAL SPECATACULAR! with a special Inauguration Celebration. Originally commissioned and performed in October 2008, OBAMA DRAMA is a weekend of world-premiere short plays inspired by the man, the myth(s) and the Michelle of the 44th President of the United States. As the 2008 election heated up, Creative Destruction asked playwrights to dramatize what most intrigued them about Barack Obama. The result was an immediate, powerful look at the man who embodied the hopes and dreams of a nation ready for change. For three nights, a cast of 18 actors played to sold-out houses and standing ovations as a community came together in the hopes of change. Twelve days later, on November 4, 2008, Obama was elected and history was made.
Grab front row seats to history January 15-17 as we celebrate Obamas historic victory, Inauguration, and Presidency. Stay and play with the artists of Creative Destruction at their Barack the Inauguration Party following the show on Friday, January 16th. Join us in celebrating Change coming to Washington.
