Nuclear Follies
Book and Songs by
Gregory Langdon and Joseph R. Peret

Everything old is news again!  It's 1984. NUCLEAR FOLLIES is a topical musical comedy revue about an inept President flanked by a warhawk General and a Teflon Aide getting all their impending WWIII bulletins from a single news network, rife with advice on the evacuation of New York and  the best ways to survive a nuclear blast.  Once WWIII starts, The President takes refuge at a Shelter Cabaret with the best remaining entertainers around.  Song titles include, "Evil Russian Guys," "The Triumph of Ideology," "Star Wars Blues," "Winnable War," and "Nuclear War Really Brings Me Down."  

The New York Times' Stephen Holden described Nuclear Follies as "An exuberant satirical revue devoted to the proposition that the end of the world is a hoot."
