A Musical Comedy Revue
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 war-hawk 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."
