I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Theater Thursday - Political Idol 2020


What: Political Idol 2020

Where: www.politicalidollive.com

Who: Teens and Up

When: Through November 3, 2020

Political Idol 2020 is a spoof of the presidential election in the format of a singing competition. Although the impersonations over all are not that great definitely not of the caliber of a show like Saturday Night Live, the songs are clever and the singing voices are nice. Besides, where else would you get to hear such gems as It's A Diversion (sung to the tune of Like a Virgin), Butch and Brainy Buttigeg (sung to the tune of Boogie, Woogie Bugle Boy), Seasons of Trump (sung to the tune of Seasons of Love), Everyone Goes (sung to the tune of Anything Goes) and more? The songs chosen to parody are a nice mix of pop songs and show tunes. However, even if you are unfamiliar with a song or two or not a fan of one or both of these genres of music, the parodies are still enjoyable and relatable. Even though both parties are represented here, the show definitely skews toward the Democratic side so if you lean toward the Republican side of the spectrum, you may not enjoy it as much. However, if that doesn't bother you and/or you are a Democrat, you might want to take this last opportunity to enjoy the lighter side of things before things really get heated and crazy on Election Day.

And that's our view.Tickets to Political Idol 2020 are $20.20. For more information or to purchase a ticket, visit www.politicalidollive.com.

Don't forget to vote if you haven't already! It matters!

Tune in Saturday for Still More Theater Saturday.
