Idaho: The Comedy Musical

Like it or not, Idaho is being memorialized in a new theatrical project: “Idaho: The Comedy Musical.” Notice it’s not billed as a musical comedy. According to its writer, Buddy Sheffield, that’s because the comedy and satire drive the action and the music, not the other way around. With a book by Sheffield and music by Sheffield and Keith Thompson, it has been in the works since 2006. It received a showcase at the New York Theater Festival in 2008. Now it will get a full production in Las Vegas, Nev./Dana Oland, Idaho Statesman. More here.

You can listen to the song “Heck, It’s a Helluva Day” from “Idaho: The Comedy Musical," here. Warning: Some adult content/language.
