The Musical dares to answer the crucial questions: "Exactly how did something this ridiculous happen? To our president? And why did we care somuch?" And it dares to answer these questions in song. Taking an approach that defies the need for actual research and relies instead on a generous helping of postmodern imagination, libelous implications, and things that couldn't have actually happened, Monica! is a bold satire that mixes D.C. politics with the best and worst characteristics of musical theater, all the while causing us to examine our relationship to scandal and human frailty. At once a galvanizing theater experience and a crap pack of lies, Monica! The Musical is, at the very least, highly entertaining. About the authors: Daniel J. Blau, Tracie Potochnik, and Adam Blau have been working on Monica! The Musical since their first day on god's green earth. Though the seeds for the musical were planted during the unfolding of the scandal, they were given fresh insight when put into the context of more recent national events. Brothers Adam and Daniel live in New York and Los Angeles depending on their moods, while Tracie resides in picturesque Providence, Rhode Island. Daniel works as a story editor on a reality television show, all the while continuing to skewer other TV shows as a critic for Television Without Pity. Adam is a composer for film and theater who has written music for such cult favorites as Call Us Crazy: The Anne Heche Monologues and the feature film Buttleman. Tracie has sold her soul to the non-profit sector and thinks a lot about writing a hit children's book.
